From the deep sea where the light has never shined.
A dark fantasy music project formed by the instrumental band Anoice, featuring dark cinematic sounds with two female vocalists, who sing in their own originally created languages, Films, has finally created their new album 'at the deep end' which is also their first album in seven years.
As with the previous album, 'signs from the past', which featured a beautiful tapestry made of Films' unconstrained high tone voices and the guest vocalist, Calu's gentle warm voice, 'at the deep end' has a beautiful and ephemeral atmosphere. With this release, the sound of the album takes the listener on an even more breath taking and deeper journey, and it will encourage you all to appreciate the seven years wait. Continuing from the previous album, Yuki Murata who is the pianist admired by many musicians such as the late Ryuichi Sakamoto and Takeshi Kobayashi, composed all tracks, Anoice, a cinematic instrumental music group, played all the instruments, and Takahiro Kido who takes charge of music for many movies and commercial adverts, arranged and mixed all the tracks, and then mastered them.
This album 'at the deep end' contains beautiful and quiet songs such as 'blue in gray' and 'the deep sea' which were used as inserted song on the upcoming new movie 'RAIN' directed by Robin Bain in US, and also 'dispersion' premiered at the stage of ASIA BEAUTY EXPO 2022, one of the biggest beauty salon business events in Asia. In addition, there some masterpieces such as 'into the vervet storm' and 'ever changing' which are destructive dark fantasy songs that are Films' representative sound, and especially the lead single 'noctiluca' is one of the best emotional and ephemeral neoclassical/electronica songs.
This is unique masterpiece has an atmosphere that makes you feel you are immersed within the deep sea.
Films is a dark fantasy music unit formed by Anoice, an instrumental music band featuring dark cinematic sounds, with two female vocalists who sing in their own originally created languages. They make creative and beautiful music using the classical sounds of piano and stringed instruments, often blending them with electric, destructive rhythms. Films debuted by releasing their first album 'Messenger' on Noble Label in 2010. In 2013, Films released their second album 'a forbidden garden' on Ricco Label, and received much praise from Nobuo Uematsu, the composer for the Final Fantasy series. This album was also included in the trilogy that has a 'memories' theme together with Anoice's fourth album 'into the shadows' and the third album 'Gift' from Yuki Murata. After the successes of the Europe tour and the first live performance in Japan held at Saitama Super Arena which gathered 10,000 people in 2016, Films began the new project 'mizu amane' featuring the lyrics sung with Japanese archaic languages which are no longer spoken, and released five singles up until now. Also, in November 2016, Films released their third album, 'signs from the past', featuring Calu who is the vocalist of Matryoshka. Films went to Hong-Kong, China tour with Anoice, and then, released the 4th album 'at the deep end' in 2023. This album contains beautiful and quiet songs which were used as inserted song on a movie 'Girls on Film' directed by Robin Bain in US, and also another song premiered at the stage of ASIA BEAUTY EXPO 2022, one of the biggest beauty salon business events in Asia.
