UK post-rock outfit Her Name is Calla is celebrating 10 years as a band with a soundtrack to the last decade from playing small clubs to growing into larger and more ambitious performances. ¬†Fans of Balmorhea and the meek musicianship of Sigur Ros will undoubtedly love Calla’s sweet melancholia. ¬†If you ever wondered what it sounded like to hear a violin weep, give this a listen.

Track 1 His Heart Was Going Like Mad¬†is a great example of their perfection of the slow build, starting off with a sparse, mournful¬†piano loop and carefully intertwining it with a menacing guitar growl and pounding drums, then adding strings and synths reminiscent of M83’s very early work from¬†Dead Cities, Red Seas & Lost Ghosts.

As of this post, only 33 of the clear vinyl variants remain. ¬†There’s also a boxset of the album limited to 1oo for the band’s die-hards that will run you $60 before shipping. ¬†Whichever choice you make, these are fleeting fast.
