About UH HUH HER:

Formed in Los Angeles, UH HUH HER debuted to a packed house of industry heads, critics and fans, many of whom might have been more familiar with HAILEY’s character “Alice” on “The L Word” than they were with her role in ’90s indie duo The Murmurs. For GREY, it was her first group project since tenure with the lo-fi indie-rock outfit Mellowdrone. Co-produced by GREY and Al Clay (Pixies, Blur), their full-length debut Common Reaction was a full serving of new wave electro-pop that broke through with the anthemic single “Not A Love Song.” The album went on to receive an overwhelming amount of critical praise, with the NEW YORK TIMES hailing the disc “…a lush, layered collection of dizzying, synth-driven pop(Amanda Petrusich, 10/24/08) and the VILLAGE VOICE adding “Uh Huh Her’s debut album is a stylized mix of guitars and synthesizers framed by melancholic yet glamour-tinged vocals” (Zoe Gemelli, October 29-November 4). Elsewhere, the LOS ANGELES TIMES noted, “Uh Huh Her’s sleek, synth-infused sound is closer to Adore-era Smashing Pumpkins or Metric than it is to the moody English alt-rocker (PJ Harvey). The band’s debut album, is an electro-pop feast characterized by layers of overlapping vocals(David Greenwald, 5/29/08). The ROLLING STONE coined them a “Sultry indie electro duo…” (Caryn Ganz, 10/23/08) and the NEW YORKER added, “…[Uh Huh Her] traffic in throbbing synth-pop that’s destined to make mascara run” (Kelefa Sanneh, 10/24/08). SPIN added, “[Uh Huh Her] create a lush soundscape of lilting piano arrangements, percolating electronic threads, and sparkling vocals a la Metric and the now-defunct Organ” (Samantha Promisloff, 7/27/08).
