British indie rockers Wet Leg have announced their self-titled debut album. Wet Leg arrives April 8th, 2022, and as a preview, the duo have shared two new songs, “Too Late Now,” and “Oh No.”
The project of Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers, Wet Leg originally began as a humorous outlet for frustration. “Wet Leg was originally just supposed to be funny,” Teasedale said. “As a woman, there’s so much put on you, in that your only value is how pretty or cool you look. But we want to be goofy and a little bit rude. We want to write songs that people can dance to. And we want to people to have a good time, even if that might not possible all of the time.”
In a statement, Teasedale said that “Too Late Now,” is “about sleepwalking into adulthood. I never imagined that my adult life would look the way it does and I guess this song reflects on some of the pressures and pulls of life. Sometimes I get really inside my head and everything can feel very overwhelming. I think this song is about accepting that life can feel a bit shit from time to time. Maybe don’t indulge that thought too much though. Just take some time for yourself. Take a breath. Have a bath. It might make you feel a bit better.”
The song comes with a music video directed by Fred Rowson. It shows Wet Leg as part of a gaggle of robe-wearing adventurers, exploring modern life with a relatable confusion.
As for “Oh No,” it’s an ode to the doom scroll. “I went home/ All alone,” Teasdale sings. “Checked my phone/ Oh, no.” Check out both songs below.
