Release debut single “Chaise Longue”
Upcoming UK live dates include Isle Of Wight & Latitude Festivals + Sports Team’s Margate Bus Trip
Amidst a night of hazy scenes in their native Isle of Wight, Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers found themselves at the summit of a Ferris wheel.
They decided to start a band. The band is called Wet Leg.
Arming themselves with guitars, a penchant for French disco, effervescent imaginations and a shared love of The Ronettes and Jane Birkin, through to Ty Segall and Bjork, they set about making some recordings of their own.
Today, Wet Leg are pleased to share their debut single with the world. The song is called “Chaise Longue”. Produced by Jon McMullen and mixed by Alan Moulder (Arctic Monkeys, Beach House, Foals), “Chaise Longue” is an infectious, tongue-in-cheek instant-classic with a suitably irrepressible video (directed by the band themselves) to match.
