Uh Huh Her
If Uh Huh Her sound familiar, well, they oughtta. Not only does this electro-pop duo take its name from PJ Harvey's 2004 album, but half of it consists of Leisha Hailey, whom you may know from either her former band or her current acting gig. Back in the early '90s, Hailey was half of the Lilith Fair-touring alt-pop duo the Murmurs (she also famously dated k.d. lang for several years), but she began switching gears into acting in 1997 and in 2004 won the part of Alice Pieszecki on The L Word. After a five-year break, Hailey decided to make a return to music and, fortuitously, wound up getting introduced to bassist and keyboardist Camila Grey. Grey had built up a reputation as a member of Mellowdrone, as well as playing backup for artists like Dr. Dre and Kelly Osbourne, but had never had the opportunity to focus on her own music. It was musical kismet, and the two hid out at Grey's house writing their debut EP, 2007's I See Red. It was followed the next year by the full-length Common Reaction.
