As fans of this rather photogenic American couple - and duo -
will no doubt be aware, Uh Huh Her's follow-up to 2008 debut album
Common Reaction was released earlier this month. It's called
Nocturnes, and we've finally had a chance to give it a proper spin
(that's music journo talk for "listen", we're told). And you know
what? It's pretty great.
Produced by one half of the band, Camila Grey (she's the one on
the right with the very on-trend undercut), and Wendy Melvoin,
formerly of Prince & the Revolution and Wendy & Lisa,
Nocturnes is 11 tracks of "moody dance pop with guitar and
synth-driven electro." More specifically, I heard someone somewhere
describe it as "electro gaze" if that means anything to you.
Currently I am listening to Another Case on repeat; watch it
(below) and you might well find yourself joining me. Human Nature
is another amazing track, very slow and dreamy. I like it.
In short: if you've dismissed Uh Huh Her in the past as a quirky
L Word spin-off (Leisha played Alice in The L Word, for those who
never watched the show), or have mistaken them for the PJ Harvey
album of the same name, you are missing out. Watch the videos below
and you'll see why.
