Uh Huh Her

Media Title

It’s difficult to not get behind a band that uses a cool PJ Harvey record as its name. But the similarities aren’t as sonic as they are in creative philosophy: Woman-positive, cathartic and a little bit queer. See, Leisha Hailey’s been out and proud for almost 25 years now, no small feat for a woman who came out before the ‘90s began. She gave acting a spin for six years in the mid-2000s, starring in Showtime’s The L Word as bi journalist Alice Pieszecki. And the other half of Uh Huh Her is Camila Grey, Hailey’s partner, a former member of Mellowdrone plus a touring and production support player manning bass and keys for Melissa Auf der Maur, Adam Lambert, Tricky, Dre and Busta.

Uh Huh Her’s music, though, is seemingly their own and born of a loving musical and personal relationship. They specialize in airy but futuristic and upbeat emotional electropop, like lesbian lounge music for Italo disco clubs. Their latest LP, the two-month-old Future Souls, feels like a feminine Junior Boys or a synth-heavier Cardigans. These two have definitely listened to their fair share of Erasure, Pet Shop Boys and Boy George, too. If the names Lindsay Peterson and Melanie Marcus mean anything to you, you pretty much have to be in attendance tonight. // BILL CHENEVERT
