“Wet Leg have made our favourite debut single of the year so far” (Steve Lamacq– BBC 6Music)

“They’re one of those new bands whose sound and aesthetic seem to have arrived fully formed, promising exciting if totally unpredictable things to come.” (The New York Times)

“Quite clearly the best new band on the planet” (Dork)

“Isle Of Wight’s finest” (Clara Amfo– BBC Radio 1)

“The buzziest 3:16 of the year” (DIY)

“Wet Leg have arrived fully formed as one of the most exciting bands in the country.” (Clash)

“Immensely charming” (Stereogum) 

“Stupidly fun and outrageously addictive” (NME)

“A real corker” (Brooklyn Vegan)

June 2021 saw the arrival of brand new Isle of Wight duo Wet Leg with their storming debut single “Chaise Longue” – since then the song has clocked up over three million streams, nearly one million video views and also won Wet Leg’s Rhian Teasdale & Hester Chambers fans in the likes of Paramore’s Hayley Williams, Iggy Pop, Florence Welch and film critic Mark Kermode.

Now, the two-piece are ready to unleash their next single, “Wet Dream”. A two-and-a-half minute slice of exuberance as unforgettable and buoyant as “Chaise Longue” that cements them as one of the most thrilling bands to emerge this year.

Teasdale explains its origins; “Wet Dream is a break-up song; it came about when one of my exes went through a stage of texting me after we we’d broken-up, telling me that he’d ‘had a dream about me’.”

The video – directed by Rhian Teasdale – is like something out of Věra Chytilová and Salvador Dali’s wildest dreams.

Having already become one of the most talked-about bands at this summer’s Latitude, Green Man and Isle Of Wight Festivals as well as supporting the likes of Jungle and Declan McKenna on tour, Wet Leg quickly sold-out their own forthcoming headline shows in London, Glasgow & Manchester. They are now confirmed to play the Pitchfork Music Festival in Paris and Amsterdam’s London Calling, as well as support slots this autumn with Shame, Inhaler and Willie J Healey. A full UK tour for 2022 is due to be announced soon.
