New Domino band Wet Leg share debut single “Chaise Lounge” (watch the video)
UK duo Wet Leg hail from the Isle of Wight and are comprised of Rhian Teasdale (who previously made music as RHAIN) and Hester Chambers. According to their press release, the decided to start a band together while atop a ferris wheel and cite everything from The Ronettes and Jane Birkin to Bjork and Ty Segall as influences. They have signed to Domino and have just released their debut single, a real corker of a track titled "Chaise Lounge."
"Is your mother worried," Teasdale asks dryly over a danceable rock beat before following up with "Would you like us to assign someone to worry your mother?" There's a coy wit here and, when the guitars kick in, the song recalls the heyday of Franz Ferdinand, The Futureheads and The Rakes. "Chaise Lounge" is even better when watched with its video that features excellent dancing from Chambers, as well as some high kicks. The video, like the song is a lot of fun and you can watch it below.
