New Domino Records signing, Wet Leg, have just dropped their debut single, ‘Chaise Longue’ – an infectious tongue-in-cheek anthem that is going to be blasting from park mini-speakers all summer long. Watch their self-directed video above.
“Is your muffin buttered?/ Would you like us to send someone to butter your muffin” asks Rhian Teasdale, in a deadpan drawl. It’s got elements of Dry Cleaning or Goat Girl about it – in a very good way.
Wet Leg are made up of Isle of Wight natives, Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers and this first offering from the duo has been mixed by Alan Moulder (Arctic Monkeys. Beach House, Foals).
You can catch the band on tour this summer – panny permitting – at Latitude festival and in support slots for Declan McKenna and Willy J Healy. Watch this space – we predict big things.
