Wet Leg auf Wikipedia (oder andere Quellen):

Wet Leg is the debut studio album by British rock duo Wet Leg, released on 8 April 2022 by Domino. It was promoted by the viral hit "Chaise Longue", followed by the singles "Wet Dream", "Too Late Now", "Oh No", "Angelica", and "Ur Mum". The album received acclaim from music critics, topped the charts in Australia and the United Kingdom, and entered the top ten charts in Belgium, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands and New Zealand. It was shortlisted for the 2022 Mercury Prize and it won the Grammy for Best Alternative Music Album at the 65th Annual Grammy Awards and nominated for Album of the Year at the 2023 Brit Awards.[1][2]


Wet Leg was recorded in April 2021, before the band had even played live, with Speedy Wunderground's Dan Carey acting as main producer.[3]


Wet Leg released their debut single "Chaise Longue" on 15 June 2021. The song earned the band acclaim from various magazines after it went viral online.[4] They followed it up with "Wet Dream" on 28 September 2021 with a "surreal" self-directed video.[5] "Wet Dream" was sent to alternative radio in the United States on 19 April 2022.[6]

The duo released the double singles "Too Late Now" and "Oh No" on 29 November 2021, alongside a sci-fi video for the former track and the announcement of the album's release date, tracklist, and tour dates.[3][7] "Oh No" received a music video 1 February 2022, while "Too Late Now" was sent to adult alternative radio in the United States on 7 February 2022.[8][9] "Angelica" and "Ur Mum" were released as the fifth and sixth singles on 28 February and 4 April 2022, respectively.[10][11]

The band toured the album across North America and Europe in 2022.[12]


Primarily an indie rock,[13] post-punk,[14] alternative rock,[15] Britpop,[14] post-punk revival,[16] indie pop,[17] and punk pop album,[18] Wet Leg takes influence from a variety of other genres, particularly '90s and '00s indie and garage pop.[16][19]

"Being in Love" is an indie pop, wonky pop, and bubblegum grunge-pop song with post-punk riffs, a synth-rock groove, and art pop influences.[18][20][21] "Chaise Longue" is a post-punk and garage punk song wherein Teasdale "intone[s] a series of non sequiturs – from suggestive Mean Girls quotes ('would you like us to assign someone to butter your muffin?') to suggestive allusions to academia" in a deadpan voice.[22][18] "Angelica" is a psychedelic pop and slacker rock song with "ethereal, dreamy harmonies amid distorted guitars" about "a woman miserably going through the motions at a party".[22][23][24][25] "I Don't Wanna Go Out" is a psychedelic and grunge song that lifts the riff from David Bowie's "The Man Who Sold the World".[22][26] "Wet Dream" is an indie rock and surf rock song with disco handclaps, "a big, shout-along chorus", "a looping bassline and propulsive beat".[27][19][18][16] Long-time guitarist Joshua Mobaraki co-wrote the song. Teasdale sings about an ex who texts her when she appears in his wet dreams, as well as doing other increasingly ridiculous things like "exposing himself on the side of the road, climbing onto the hood of her car, licking the windshield."[27] The song references the film Buffalo '66 in the line "Baby do you want to come home with me; I've got Buffalo '66 on DVD".[28] "Convincing", the only song Hester Chambers sings lead on, is an psychedelic folk, folk-pop, glam rock, and ethereal song influenced by lounge music that "finds [Chambers] in a rut of sadness, not ready to start digging herself out".[29][24][21] "Loving You" is a country pop ballad sung in falsetto that "details the breakdown of a relationship and the painful aftermath of seeing an ex moving on with someone else".[29][18] "Ur Mum" is a surf rock-inspired pop song that sees Teasdale "calling out a former lover, asking them to forget her", culminating in Teasdale "announcing that she’s been practicing her 'loudest scream,' counting to three before letting out a screech."[30][31] "Oh No" is a glam rock and glam punk song with "fuzzed-out guitars" about doomscrolling and smartphone anxiety.[13][27][18] The folk-tinged "Piece of Shit" "compares a full-of-themselves partner to excrement in the toilet bowl" and incorporates "computer game blips".[29][32] "Supermarket" is a slacker rock song influenced by first-wave British punk that tells a story about being stoned while shopping.[22][27] "Too Late Now" is an atmospheric, experimental post-rock and guitar pop song that features "a gratifyingly relatable self-doubt break, when the music drops out to allow Teasdale to document her existential angst as it spreads into the track she is currently performing".[22][23][26]

Wet Leg received widespread acclaim from music critics upon its release. On Metacritic, the album has an average score of 87 out of 100 based on 27 reviews, indicating "universal acclaim".[34] Reviewing the album for AllMusic, Heather Phares claimed that "It's rare that a band is so fully formed at the start of their career, but on their self-titled debut album, Wet Leg deliver more of those immediately memorable hooks and relatable, witty retorts."[35] Clash writer Robin Murray called it "the most infectious, alluring, irresistible, and downright fun debut record that’s come our way in a long, long time".[23] In a five-star review for DIY, Lisa Wright praised the band's unique personality, saying "it’s the slightly wonky worldview of the band themselves that really elevates Wet Leg into the realms of the truly special. Don’t be fooled by the prairie dresses and sweetly innocent vocal delivery, Rhian has bite and gleefully revels in a rude one liner."[39]

In another five-star review for NME, Rhian Daly called it an "instant classic" and "It rushes with liberating, infectious joy that makes you want to grab your own partner-in-crime and speed off on an adventure to find somewhere that’s, as "Angelica"'s mantra suggests, is 'good times all the time'." Rachel Aroesti of The Guardian called Wet Leg a "collection of 90s and 00s-era indie that is by turns dreamy, lush, hooky and thunderous, and layered with lyrics saturated with millennial disaffection, anxiety and overwhelm."[22] The Independent writer Annabel Nugent said that "In vocals that vacillate between taunting melody and rage, Teasdale and Chambers speak to their twenty-something peers in a language they know: work is dull, dating apps are awful, parties aren’t as fun as they used to be, death is (thankfully?) inevitable".[37] Rob Sheffield of Rolling Stone said that "All told, Wet Leg are a couple of artsy rock & rollers who want too much, feel too much, hate too much, while chasing too many good times. No wonder the world was so ready to fall madly in love with them. After two years of quarantine blues, there was just a widespread cultural craving for this kind of action, and Wet Leg were as surprised as anyone when they tapped into it. But the album makes it sound like they're just getting started."[14] Paste contributor Eric R. Danton said "Their songwriting is tight, their lyrics are brazen, smart and amusing, and they are at ease shifting through various indie styles. What really makes Wet Leg stand out, though, is that Teasdale and Chambers are so clearly having fun."[27]

In a more mixed review Kitty Empire, selecting it as her Observer Album of the Week, nevertheless expressed disappointment at the album's mundanity, stating "Wet Leg’s unself-conscious art seemed initially to foreground the ridiculousness of everything (especially weird stains). Their album, by contrast, drills down hard into how rubbish exes are. Relatable, of course, understandable too, but perhaps not what was originally indicated by those lobster claws."[40]

Wet Leg are the first band from the Isle of Wight to achieve a UK number 1 album.[41]

Wet Leg

Wet Leg auf Wikipedia (oder andere Quellen):

Wet Leg are a British indie rock group from the Isle of Wight, founded in 2019 by Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers. They debuted with the single "Chaise Longue" in 2021. Their self-titled debut album debuted in 2022 at number one on the UK Albums Chart, Australia's ARIA Albums Chart and the Irish Albums Chart. The album was shortlisted for the 2022 Mercury Prize. At the 65th Annual Grammy Awards, Wet Leg won Best Alternative Music Album for their debut and Best Alternative Music Performance for "Chaise Longue", and were nominated for Best New Artist.[1][2] They also won Best New Artist and Best British Group at the 2023 Brit Awards.


Early lives

Merseyside-born Teasdale moved from Formby to the Isle of Wight when she was eight.[3] She performed for many years on the Isle of Wight as a local musician and pianist,[4] and prior to forming Wet Leg, was known as RHAIN and was linked to the music scene in Bristol.[5] As RHAIN, Teasdale performed her song "Humdrum Drivel" in 2013.[6] In 2014 she was photographed by Cosmopolitan magazine while attending the Isle of Wight music festival.[7]

2019–present: band beginnings and first studio album

Teasdale and Chambers first met at Platform One College of Music on the Isle of Wight while studying.[8] After ten years of friendship, they formed a band in 2019 under the name Wet Leg,[9] and later signed with Domino Recording Company.[10][11] Several different explanations have been given for how the band name came to be. According to a December 2021 interview, they chose the name by playing a game of picking different emoji combinations.[12] In an interview with Diffus posted on YouTube in April 2022, the band stated that their name came from an Isle of Wight epithet to describe non-locals on the island; those who had crossed the Solent to reach the isle were said to have a wet leg from getting off the boat.[13]

Playing at the Electric Ballroom in 2022

The band's debut single, "Chaise Longue", was released on 15 June 2021,[14] and gained media notice for earning millions of streams and video views.[15] Their second single, "Wet Dream", was released on 28 September 2021. Variety noted, "It's rare that a new group releases two songs and they're both great". They appeared on Later... with Jools Holland on BBC2, on 30 October 2021.[16] On 29 November 2021, they announced their debut self-titled album, released on 8 April 2022 via Domino. The same day, Wet Leg released the double-single "Too Late Now" / "Oh No".[17]

In 2022, they toured the UK playing songs from their first album. It was then announced that they would tour Australia and New Zealand as the support band for Harry Styles's Oceanic leg of Love On Tour in 2023.[18] Wet Leg appeared on Later... with Jools Holland in November 2021 and returned for the first part of his next series in May 2022.[19]

In an interview with Andrew Ford of ABC in Australia in July 2022, Wet Leg clarified that a comment about a completed second album in a previous interview[20] was "a big joke". "We haven't got a second album; we haven't had any time to write".[21]

Wet Leg received three nominations at the 65th Annual Grammy Awards, including Best New Artist, Best Alternative Music Performance ("Chaise Longue") and Best Alternative Music Album.[1] Of these, they won the Grammys for Best Alternative Music Performance and Best Alternative Music Album.[22] Wet Leg won Best New Artist and Group of the Year at the Brit Awards 2023 where they performed "Chaise Longue" with the prog Morris dance troup, Boss Morris, and their Morris beasts.[23]

Wet Leg performed at Coachella in April 2023,[24] where they were joined on-stage by Dave Grohl during their performance of "Ur Mum".[25]

On 6 July 2023, Wet Leg remixed Depeche Mode's track "Wagging Tongue", the second single from their Memento Mori album.[26]
