Calf is a post rock/noise band formed in Athens in 2009. They present a complicated mixture of music that can sometimes reach the edge, as you can notice in any single track of their debut album.
Their music combines peaceful melodies that are suddenly transformed in energetic and even violent sounds. Their debut album “A Constant Loss Departs from the Sentiment of the Abandoned” was released on 2011, as a self-release and is distributed by the independent net-label Noteale Records, on CD and as a free download.
