And they’re sharing two new songs to celebrate.

With only two songs currently out - ‘Chaise Longue’ and ‘Wet Dream’ - Isle of Wight’s Wet Leg have already become the most exciting new indie band in the ‘biz, and now they’ve announced that their hotly-anticipated self-titled debut album will be arriving on 8th April via Domino to further accelerate their star power.

Recorded in London and produced by Speedy Wunderground’s Dan Carey, the band’s Rhian Teasdale notes, “I wanted to write fun songs, I didn’t want to indulge sad feelings too much, I wanted to write stuff that’s fun to listen to and fun to play. But then, the sad seeps through, as well.”

“Wet Leg was originally just supposed to be funny,” she continues. “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 people to have a good time, even if that might not possible all of the time.”

Sharing two new songs, ‘Oh No’ and ‘Too Late Now’, to celebrate, Rhian adds of the latter, “It 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.”
