Regular price $10.00

Format

Let's get this straight immediately: Anoice is not another instrumental group with strong rock tendencies and an armchair association with classical music. Unlike numerous contemporaries to which they will undoubtedly be compared, their goal is not to follow the trends and make the soft/loud/soft/loud juxtapositions in every song, but to carefully craft each song with a strong attention to melody, solid accompaniment, and courteous counterpoint.

Reviews

"With guitars, bass, viola, keyboards and drums, the six Anoice succeed to create incredible atmospheres between Sigur Ros, Arvo Part and Rachel's." ~ Rockerilla (Italy)

“Even when all of them are going at it hammer and tongs they act more like an orchestra with each player adding their own element to the melody. Anoice hit all the blissful and joyous emotions and only rarely dip into melancholy like most bands of the same ilk. “ ~ Brainwashed

"Anoice have produced something entirely different and original, a mature record of great beauty and attention to detail that rises above any clichés and should by all accounts establish them as one of the leading artists today. " ~ Rock A rolla (UK)

"Anoice Remmings (Important) This Tokyo-based sextet make some really sublime instrumental music. Monumental and subtly nuanced; they all allow plenty of room for each other. Mixing guitars, programming, viola, bass, piano, drums, mandolin, and synthesizer, into the nine varied sonic excursions presented here. Mesmerizing soundtracks to nonexistant films that bloom in the center of your mind. Ranging from very small and soft spoken, to toweringly grand and vast. Some pieces have the feel of chamber music renditions of Mogwai or Spacemen 3 songs; others feel like an accurate aural description of loneliness." ~ Dream Magazine

"I was sold this record on the promise that Anoice are “like Rachel’s…but they rock…” But isn’t that Godspeed? Well, no because whereas Godspeed dangle you worringly over a cliff for the duration of an album, Anoice frequently drop you, pick you up again and occasionally even make you float. What’s more, there’s often more of a rhythmic framework here. The bass isn’t afraid to groove, the drums do ‘Bolero’ behind the cascades of passionate viola and hammered piano. Anoice, in fact, are as adept at approaching the rock/classical thing from the rock end as the classical end, which gives them more than one string to their bow and potentially makes for some celestial live performances. In places, they sound like an instrumental Arcade Fire. In others – particularly the incredibly beautiful tracks 5 - 8 – they sound as good as any living film composer worth his salt. If track 6 (Liange) doesn’t astound you, you are a glacier. There’s a readymade market for evocative, anthemic, cinematic stuff like this, of course, be it on the bill of All Tomorrow’s Parties or soundtracking some intense French film noir, with Emanuelle Beart running down the steps of la Basilique du Sacre Coeur in torrential rain. Even so, Anoice have that something special that could elevate them even beyond that. This is not a group, as such. These people are modern composers. "  ~ Glen Johnson, Piano Magic
