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 TV’s “The L Word.” For GREY, it was her first group project since tenure with the lo-fi indie-rock outfit Mellowdrone (Jonathan Bates, Big Black Delta). Co-produced by GREY and Al Clay (Pixies) Common Reaction, the group’s debut 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” 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”.  Los Angeles Times hailed it, “an electro-pop feast characterized by layers of overlapping vocals” (David Greenwald). Rolling Stone coined the duo a “Sultry indie electro duo…” and SPIN magazine 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.” In October 2011, UHH released their second LP Nocturnes, produced by CAMILA and Wendy Melvoin (Prince & the Revolution, Wendy & Lisa)   the album was recorded at Wendy’s personal studio inside the famed Henson Studios compound in Los Angeles. The track “Debris” was produced by LEISHA and guitarist Brad Ackley. The resulting11-song mix perfectly melds the group’s moody dance pop with guitar and synth-driven electro.  The LA Weekly to describe it as “…a combination of against-the-grain grit and pop ambition that live, delivers a little snarl and a lot of swoon.” Rolling Stone premiered the first single and video “Black & Blue,” and hailed it an “intense, understated clip that is well-suited to the band’s dark, moody sensibility” (Alex Levy). Album highlights including the anthemic, synthesizer-driven songs “Another Case,” “Wake To Sleep,” and “Human Nature” as well as “Same High,” written for and featured in the Golden Globe-winning and Academy Award-nominated film The Kids Are All Right, typify the combination of beauty and aggression that UH HUH HER harness both lyrically and musically. The duo will release their third album FUTURE SOULS March 25, 2014.
