Melancholy, pain and grief all around. Gone are the days of parties, now comes the next big depression. But nothing is more beautiful than to find them in music. Her Name Is Calla also had a rather dramatic time behind them, a time that is now experiencing its musical interpretation on the English's third album. "Navigator" is infused with pain, grief and loss. And beautiful at the same time. Her Name Is Calla create their jewels preferably on an acoustic base, whose gaps are filled with dreamlike strings and discreet electronics, which every now and then, as in the trippy "The Roots Run Deep", leads to a bit of chaos. A chaos that even ends in harsh industrial in the epic "Dreamlands". Meanwhile "Meridian Arc" borrows various elements from the Post- and Swamprock and "Burial" evokes associations with the Oscar-winning Swell Seasons. To say - a lot of melancholy, even more drama, a lot of great cinema.
