COMMON REACTION is the debut album from electro-pop duo Uh Huh Her, the L.A.-based musical pair consisting of singer/producer/multi-instrumentalist Camila Grey and musician/actress Leisha Hailey. With this album they have crafted an exciting and seamless modern rock disc. Perfected with the able hands of producer Al Clay (Pixies, Blur, Pink), this eleven song offering captivates the listener from the opening notes of it's pulsing debut single "Not a Love Song" and effortlessly charms it's way through to the evocative piano-touched finale, "Dreamer."
When did actresses all of a sudden get a pass on playing rock star? First Scarlett Johansson, then Zooey Deschanel (with M. Ward), and now The L Word's Leisha Hailey breaks out some downright infectious synth-pop. To be fair, Hailey was a musician first (in the Murmurs); now, collaborating with Camila Grey and borrowing the title of PJ Harvey's 2004 album, she's busting out Killers-style numbers like "Not a Love Song."
