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.
