Uh Huh Her "Common Reaction"

Common Reaction hit me with the same reaction I'm sure is common for most first time listeners.  Wow!  The L.A. duo comprised of lead vocalist Camila Grey and Leisha Hailey are nothing short of astonishing.  They have a sound that reminds me of a mix of Curve and Shakespeare's Sister.  But, the similarities are mostly due to vocal similarities.  

Their songs are synth driven, buzzy electro.  Grey, handling lead vocals, immediately reminded me of Curve vocalist Toni Holiday.  The only difference being Uh Huh Her is a bit more up tempo and more light hearted.  Common Reaction hits you immediately with the the buzzworthy "Not a Love Song" and continues with it's greatness all the way until the next to last track.  The last track, "Dreamer," is not the disc's strongest track and is really just a filler track.  The stand out tracks on the disc is "Wait Another Day" and "Explode."  The former is a charming little warm up, almost ballad-y type of track, while the latter is a buzz heavy kiss off.

You can pick the disc up here, and check out dates and sample music here.

I would really appreciate it if you would at least link to my blog if you're going to be linking to my mp3s and using my bandwidth.
Thank you,
