New Video: Rising Isle of Wight-Based Duo Wet Leg Release a Feverish Visual for Hook-Driven “Wet Dream”

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.

Directed by the band’s Rhian Teasdale, the recently released video for “Wet Dream” is a surrealistic fever dream, shot in the English countryside with the British duo wearing old-fashioned dresses and plastic lobster claws.

The duo also announced their first run of Stateside shows with tickets on sale October 1, 2021 at 10am local time. The tour includes a December 8, 2021 stop at Baby’s All Right. Tour dates are below and you can buy tickets here: https://www.wetlegband.com/#
