Produced by CAMILA and Wendy Melvoin (Prince & the Revolution, Wendy & Lisa), NOCTURNES (Plaid Records, Tunecore/Topspin) is the follow-up to their debut album Common Reaction and was recorded at Wendy’s personal studio inside the famed Henson Studios compound in Los Angeles. The resulting 11-song mix perfectly melds moody dance pop with guitar and synth-driven electro. It’s a musical blend that prompted SOMA magazine to describe it as “an album that marks a quantum leap in the band’s creativity. … Grey and Hailey enlisted the aid of producer Wendy Melvoin, of Wendy & Lisa fame. Melvoin gave the songs the duo had written an immense sonic palette: drums that sound like buildings collapsing, guitars that roar like supersonic fighter jets and chest-crushing bass lines. …A big part of Uh Huh Her’s sound is the harmonic blend the duo brings to their vocals. They sing with a fierce conviction, marked by wrenching vulnerability and a subtle, undeniable power.” (November, 2011) Album highlights including the anthemic, synthesizer-driven songs “Another Case,”“Wake To Sleep,” and “Human Nature” as well as “Same High,” which was written for and featured in the Golden Globe-winning and Academy Award-nominated film The Kids Are All Right.
NYLON magazine has premiered the video for the noir-inspired track “Debris” which was produced by LEISHA and guitarist Brad Ackley. The clip features and was directed by the band’s longtime photographer Tasya Van Ree.
