New UK band WET LEG is receiving a *huge* response to their debut single “ from the New York Times, NPR, etc., and is currently enjoying an enormous surge in radio play here in their native UK, Europe, and down under! If you haven’t heard it yet, here it is: “Chaise Longue”. It is the sneakiest, most fun-loving, earworm of the summer. The song is being added at radio stations all around the country.
The band – Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers – come from the Isle Of Wight, a sparsely populated island off the south coast of England accessible only by boat. They are old friends who share a penchant for French disco, effervescent imaginations, and a shared love of The Ronettes and Jane Birkin, through to Ty Segall and Bjork. Their recent UK live debut shows went with a huge bang and we’re hoping to have some information on their first US shows VERY SOON INDEED!
“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.” – New York Times
“Immensely charming…The end result lands somewhere between Dry Cleaning’s wry, sardonic post-punk and Sports Team’s Pavement-obsessed alt-rock crowd-pleasers — though you can certainly hear stated influences such as the Ronettes, Jane Birkin, Ty Segall, and Björk in there too if you squint” – Stereogum
“The debut single from U.K. rock duo Wet Leg is a doozy…the ear-grabbing track is an undeniable introduction to Wet Leg.” – Paste
“by the time they double down on the earworm hook “on the chaise longue all day long,” you feel about ready to collapse onto titular seat and unload all your stresses.” – Beats Per Minute
“a real corker…There’s a coy wit here and, when the guitars kick in, the song recalls the heyday of Franz Ferdinand, The Futureheads and The Rakes. “Chaise Lounge” is even better when watched with its video that features excellent dancing from Chambers, as well as some high kicks.” – Brooklyn Vegan
“Fueled by chugging drums and a boisterous guitar riff, the tongue-in-cheek track is whimsical and blithe, channeling the unfettered radiance of an island’s sun. It just might be your poolside song of the summer.” – Consequence Of Sound
