Wet Leg – ‘Chaise Longue’

Isle of Wight duo have announced they’ve signed to Domino Records and shared the video for new single ‘Chaise Longue’. The band – made up of Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers – have also announced details of live performances at major festivals and shows with Declan McKenna, Sports Team and Willie J Healey.

Opening with art rock guitar hooks and deadpan vocals about going to school and getting a degree (‘All my friends call it ‘The Big D’), the band showcase their dry sense of humour before the song veers into more of a garage rock direction. There’s then an invite to someone in the front row of their show to join them in their dressing room to chill on the ‘chaise longue’ and enjoy a warm can of beer. It draws to a close with bouncing rhythms and repeats of the words ‘All day long’.
