Blinded by “Mystery Lights”

Having named themselves after PJ Harvey’s 2004 album Uh Huh Her, Los Angeles’ Uh Huh Her channels just as much vulnerable desire as the revered English songstress. The dreamy electro-pop duo, made up of ex-Mellowdrone bassist/keyboardist Camila Grey and Leisha Hailey, one-half of the ’90s alt-rock outfit the Murmurs, and an acclaimed actress on Showtime’s The L Word, create a lush soundscape of lilting piano arrangements, percolating electronic threads, and sparkling vocals a la Metric and the now-defunct Organ. On “Mystery Lights,” a bonus track featured on the band’s iTunes-only I See Red EP, Uh Huh Her showcase a clean-cut delivery of Brian Eno-esque sonic swirls, complete with a haunting two-part harmony. Seasoned musicians in their own right, Grey and Hailey emulate a plugged-in version of Tegan and Sara, but also charge forward with innovative, atmospheric production. Clue in to the “Mystery” of Uh Huh Her before it’s “just a little too late.”
