All Music Guide:
Perhaps best known in the role of Alice Pieszecki on Showtime's The L Word, Leisha Hailey was also the woman behind Uh Huh Her, an electro-pop duo that made some waves on the indie circuit following the release of their debut album in 2007. Hailey, formerly of the jangly, Indigo Girls-esque duo the Murmurs, decided to make a return to the music biz following a five year break; she was subsequently introduced to Mellowdrone bassist and keyboardist Camila Grey in early 2007 and the pair hit it off. Billing themselves as Uh Huh Her (a reference to PJ Harvey's chart-topping 2004 album), the duo holed up in Grey's home in Los Angeles and recorded their debut long-player, I See Red. An ethereal affair that nodded to the nocturnal, dance-oriented synth of acts like Metric and Ladytron while simultaneously building on Hailey's alt-rock roots, the disc was released on Plaid later that year. In August 2008, Uh Huh Her returned with Common Reaction on RCA.
