Biography
After three 5-track demo CD-r released between 2000 and 2001, Celluloide's debut album 'Naive Heart' sees the day in 2002: twelve pure synthpop songs with delicate and cold female vocals.
Equally acclaimed by international specialised press, this first CD marks also the experimental attitude of Celluloide, with a limited numbered edition of the CD presenting the same 12 tracks in experimental re-constructed versions, enlarging the electronic musical horizons of the band.
During the recording sessions of their second album Words Once Said, Celluloide record 6 covers of 80's wave classics (Sisters Of Mercy, Siouxsie, Cure etc…) turned into Celluloide's synthpop style and offer it for free download.
'Naphtaline' this 6-track tribute downloadable EP is extremely well received too without being specially promoted.
While the long mixing work of the second album, Naphtaline announces the improved sound of the new tracks to come...
2004 sees the band's second album released: 'Words Once Said', which follows the way opened with 'Naive Heart', with 12 pure synthpop clean songs. Refining their style between retro and modern, Words Once Said will also define new directions of the band's sound.
After few months of extremely positive feedback from the press, Celluloide signs with Boytronic's label Major Records for a re-release of Words Once Said for Germany with a very special edition including a track in German... Words Once Said is immediately very well received in Germany, quoted as Best Album in Zillo Magazine 15 years anniversary edition.
Celluloide see their efforts rewarded in France as well with an apparition in the second volume of Carnets Noirs, an anthology of underground wave music from the early 80’s to nowadays. But the band is already back at work in 2005, with new musical intentions: after two albums of pure synthpop, Celluloide want to take a way on their own, and include more of their EBM influences in their new songs.

In 2006, to define this new genre, Celluloide self-label as Bodypop with an upcoming 6 track CD, showing a new face of the band's style: halfway between between their usual bleepy electronic tunes with charatetistic cold female vocals and danceable EBM influences.
Bodypop EP helps the band to adjust their new style into an more clearly modern electronic pop, preserving the personality of Celluloide while showing the direction for the new 2006 album to come: Passion & Ecitements.
