Camila Grey adjusts the volume on her phone and clears her throat. From a breakup with their label, to Grey’s shoulder surgery in August, the duo has continued to release moody, emotive electro-pop to a largely receptive audience. “The news referred to her as ‘the actress Leisha Hailey,’ I didn’t really take any of the heat like she did,” admits Grey. ” “In my eyes it has been the most disgusting thing that’s ever happened,” says Hailey. Leisha’s cleaning it up.” Since they charged onto the scene in 2007 on the heels of bassist Leisha Hailey’s role as Alice Pieszecki on Showtime’s , Uh Huh Her have done more than their share of cleaning up messes. “I was like, ‘Go out there and vent,’ and so she did.” Multiple media outlets picked up the story, running full-page photographs of Hailey with little to no mention of the band.
Hailey immediately fired back on social media site, Twitter.
“The stewardess came up and said ‘This is a family airline! It was the first time that I had ever been discriminated against,” says Grey.
Instead the pair were treated to a public lesson in homophobia.
“I got upset as well but I’m more level-headed, so I tried to talk calmly with the people who were bringing us off the plane.” The incident came on the eve of a U. tour that should have galvanized the artists as a formidable synth-rock outfit with a tight live set, interesting and unique dual vocals and well-muscled production by the very competent Grey.
I actually would have loved to shove my tongue down her throat and have that be warranted.” “Cam got very upset,” agrees Hailey.
