HER NAME IS CALLA (UK / Denovali Records)

2011 has seen a dramatic change in Her name is Calla’s line-up, namely the departure of long-term members, Michael Love and Thom Corah. The band’s sudden distillation into a trio has been the catalyst for intensifying their music – instead of decreasing in size and sound, the band has developed into a darker, more emotionally intimate creation.

Each of their songs has been reimagined, not as a simplified, acoustic set up, but as a display of intricate multi-instrumentalism, laying bare each member’s personal experiences at every performance.

Five years after their début EP was released to critical acclaim, The Pirate Ship Quintet have recorded their first full length album entitled ‘Rope for No-Hopers’, to be pressed courtesy of Denovali Records.
The record is a compendium of pieces chosen and refined from an abundance written over the past few years, during which time the band disappeared from the live scene.

The five tracks on this record move through the richly melodic foundations of contemporary classical and minimalist rock.
The swelling dark atmospherics give way to moments of brute force, punctuated by low level, desperate vocals. It is a little heavier and more technically diverse than the debut E.P and feels like a considered and organic evolution of the band’s method.
