Wet Leg Wet Leg 69 Most Anticipated Albums of 2022

Wet Leg made quite the splash in 2021 (pun intended) and 2022 is shaping up to be an even bigger year for the Isle-of-Wight post-punk duo. With their self-titled LP due out in April, an extensive American tour lined up for the spring, and a handful of festival appearances (including the inaugural This Ain’t No Picnic fest in LA), Wet Leg are poised and prepared to keep rocking out. “Chaise Longue” may have been one of the best songs of 2021, but for Wet Leg, it’s just the beginning.

After releasing two of the best singles of the year, Wet Leg’s Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers were catapulted from their confines on the Isle of Wight to sold out venues across the UK and packed-out tents at festivals causing giddy excitement wherever they went. Now, the duo are thrilled to unveil two new songs alongside news of their debut album. The album is called “Wet Leg” and will be released on April 8th 2022 via Domino Recordings.

The new tracks are called “Too Late Now” and “Oh No”. “Too Late Now”, a three-part epic-in-waiting, showcases a more introspective side of the duo as Teasdale rattles against dating apps and TV in a messy, bleak world, before wryly settling on a bubble bath “to set me on a higher path”. On the magnificent glam-stomp of “Oh No”, Wet Leg explore the 3am doom scroll. “You know when you’re having dinner with someone, and they check their phone, and just… go?” says Rhian. It’s an 80s sci-fi film distilled into two minutes and 29 seconds.

Collectively, Wet Leg’s previous singles “Chaise Longue” and “Wet Dream” have racked up over 8.5 million streams and over 3 million views on YouTube, scored 2 BBC 6 Music A-Lists, seen them appear on Later… with Jools Holland and getcrowned one of Vevo DSCVR Artists To Watch 2022 and Amazon Artists To Watch 2022 plus “Too Late Now” just picked up the accolade of BBC Radio 1’s Hottest Record.

Having already sold out their April 2022 UK tour, Wet Leg have confirmed a run of intimate UK regional dates as part of their role as Independent Venue Week Ambassadors. The band are also heading to the US next month for their first shows there and have now announced a March 2022 tour for North America before they head back to Europe for their May 2022 run.
