Wet Leg Announce Their Long-Awaited Debut Album And Drop ‘Too Late Now’ And ‘Oh No’

Few emerging indie acts have buzzed as loudly this year as Isle Of Wight duo Wet Leg. Singles like “Wet Dream” (whose can’t-miss video we described as a combination of “cottagecore and lobster hands“) and “Chaise Lounge” are the downright definition of infectious. The band, led by Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers, is no doubt poised to keep soaring in this here music world: Today, Wet Leg have announced plans for their debut’s album release, along with two new songs and tour dates.

The self-titled Wet Leg is due out April 8, 2022 via Domino Recordings. Album closer “Too Late Now” has a melodious guitar lick running through it, alongside throbbing bass that takes shape like songs from fellow British post-punks Dry Cleaning and Goat Girl. Teasdale says it’s about “sleepwalking into adulthood,” and the video takes a whimsical approach to that idea. “Oh No” sees an even more prominent guitar leading matter-of-fact lyricism that’s as sticky as everything the band has put out.

There’s so much to like here with Wet Leg and they’ll be touring through North America and Europe this year and next.
