Uh Huh Her consists of Camila Grey and Leisha Hailey, the latter being most familiar for her role as Alice on Showtime's wildly popular drama The L Word. Grey, who originally played bass for Los Angeles lo-fi rockers Mellodrone, has a dreamy voice edged in somewhere between the sensibilities of Kate Bush and Tori Amos. Hailey's career in music started with her duo the Murmurs—and frankly, Uh Huh Her is (pleasantly) a long way from Lilith Fair. Together, they have created an exquisite mix of lush, electronica-charged dance music. Their inspired knack for darkly romantic melancholy with Grey's gorgeous lead vocal and Hailey's pretty-as-a-picture harmonies meld perfectly with new-wave guitars and a plethora of digital flourishes—and is just the stuff that made their summer release, Common Reaction (Nettwerk), flow dreamily from start to finish. Opening the night is the Fashion, an electro-pop/rock combo straight out of Denmark. 18+.
