Live Footage: Wet Leg Performs “Wet Dream” on Vevo DSCVR

Enigmatic Isle of Wight, UK-based duo Wet Leg — Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers — emerged into the national and international scenes in June with the release of their debut single “Chaise Lounge,” which has amassed over 3,000,000 streams through DSPs and 1,000,000 views. The song managed to win the praise of Paramore‘s Hayley Williams, Florence and the Machine’s Florence Welch, and the legendary Iggy Pop. With the rising buzz surrounding them, the Isle of Wight-based duo recently signed to Domino Recording Co.

Clocking in at a little over 2:30, the British duo’s latest single “Wet Dream” is a hook-driven guitar pop confection that’s one-part Elastica-era Brit Pop, one-part Phil Spector girl pop, and one-part neurotic post punk delivered with a self-assured and stylish panache. “‘Wet Dream’ is a breakup song; it came about when one of my ex’s went through a stage of texting me after we’d broken up telling me that ‘he had a dream about me,’” Wet Leg’s Rhian Teasdale explains. 

Vevo, one of the world’s biggest music video networks recently released their complete list for their DSCVR Artists to Watch 2022 campaign: Vevo received over 500 submissions from a variety of acts across the globe — and Vevo selected 21 of them, who the video network believes will break through into the mainstream.

Rapidly rising Isle of Wight-based act Wet Leg are one of those 21 acts selected for Vevo DSCVR’s Artists to Watch 2022 list. For their session, they did a live version of “Wet Dream,” which has been burning up the blogosphere lately — and even with the live footage, you can see why.  “We’re super stoked to have been selected by Vevo to be a part of their DSCVR Artists To Watch campaign,” the rising Isle of Wight-based act say. “We had A LOT of fun shooting this and are so excited to share it with you!”

“Wet Leg are one of the best bands I’ve come across in a long while. From the moment I heard their excellent debut single ‘Chaise Longue’ I was hooked!” Alex Morley, Vevo’s Music and Talent Manager adds. ” Their energetic guitar hits come with a wry sense of humour and addictive melodies that leave you wanting more. Their partnership with Domino feels like a match made in heaven and we’ve no doubt that 2022 is going to be a huge year for Wet Leg. It was a joy capturing these performances and we can’t wait to hear what’s next from the Isle of Wight’s finest export!”
