Today, the Isle of Wight’s Wet Leg have been ranked #2 in the prestigious BBC Sound Of 2022 list. Having previously announced their debut album – entitled Wet Leg and due April 8th – the duo (Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers) look set to continue their meteoric rise in 2022. Later this month, the band will support Idles at London’s Brixton Academy – already their third time playing the venue – before kicking off their sold out UK tour as part of their role as Independent Venue Week Ambassadors.

Wet Leg was recorded and produced in the main by Speedy Wunderground’s Dan Carey in London, in April 2021, meaning they had a finished album before the world had even heard debut single “Chaise Longue” or played live. "I guess how it happened was unconventional," admits Hester. The forthcoming album is sad music for party people, and party music for sad people. It is cathartic and joyful and punk and scuzzy and above all, it's fun.

Collectively, Wet Leg’s previous singles have racked up over 12 million streams and over 4 million views on YouTube and they rounded off their impressive 2021 with a run of headline sold out tour dates in the US and a performance of “Chaise Longue” on Late Night with Seth Meyers.
