2 stars Some nice tracks!

I was attracted by the name of the band, so without knowing their history and their music, I went to their bandcamp site and download this single along with a live album; both are for free. What I found here in "Hideous Box" were three tracks of soft post rock, with classical and ethereal roots. Here we can have twelve minutes of music, only a slice of their work.

"Hideous Box" is also the name of the first track. It has a soft but dark atmosphere created by vocals, drums and strings. The cymbals never cease, but there are moments where the music is even calmer, but again, with that inherent dark atmosphere. After three minutes a trumpet appears, and later keyboards making a background. You need to be in the mood to receive this track, otherwise you may get bored. I liked it.

"With Eyes So Full of Sparks of Love" is a short track with only 1:33 minute length. Acoustic guitar and male vocals in the first moment; later piano appears in a delicate way and complements the piece. "The Good Book" is the longest of this single and the one that finishes it. This one is the most alike to older and classic post rock acts such as A Silver Mt. Zion, or even Rachel's. It is slow, beautifully sorrowful, with fantastic piano notes. An atmosphere is created and later some whispers appear, these things can be better appreciated with good headphones.

The music is good without a doubt, it is only a taste of Her Name is Calla, however, it is always better to listen to full-length albums, something I must do right away with them. Meanwhile, as I use, I will rate this single with two stars.

Enjoy it!
