"Formed some years ago out of a desire to create music that had a more emotional core, Her Name is Calla have since expanded to a six piece, seven if you include occasional addition of cello. The music they make is the music they want to make. Encapsulating brass, strings, pianos, oddities and anything else at their disposal, they craft songs and music that have a heart. That heart may not always be the one people are used to, not the bright red shining symbol of love and hope, but a heart somehow more personal. For fans of Godspeed You Black Emperor, A Silver Mt. Zion etc. "This album comes extremely recommended. 8/10" Silent Ballet 'The Heritage' is, simply put, a masterpiece of modern music...they have produced what must surely be one of the records of 2008. 6/6" Sonic Dice "...there can be no denying that Her Name Is Calla are one of the most daring, unconventional bands the UK has to offer right now. For that alone we should all be exceedingly thankful. 8/10" Drowned in Sound "Suffice to say, there had to be a step forward at some point, and clearly this is it. 10/10" Rockfood Magazine "Its a terrific record in terms of both scope and achievement. 9/10" The Four Oh Five."
