After playing live throughout the United Kingdom to much critical acclaim with the likes of iLiKETRAiNS and The Twilight Sad, Her Name is Calla released their debut album, The Heritage, in 2008, followed by a well-received headlining tour. The album lasts over 50 minutes, despite only containing six tracks.
In February 2009, they announced their arrival on the German label, Denovali Records. Denovali re-released The Heritage on vinyl in late 2009.
The band released The Quiet Lamb, containing 12 tracks and lasting over 75 minutes, on 8 November 2010. NME gave it a score of 8/10, describing it as “massive, pastorally apocalyptic music”. The Sun called it a “ten-track jewel of a record” that engages the listener “in a rare and beautiful way”.
