Wet Leg have made their NPR Tiny Desk performance debut, playing intimate renditions of their four currently released tracks.

The Isle of Wight duo, comprising Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers, were joined by a band on drums, bass and synth for a cosy session from an artsy living room.

The group performed punchy breakout singles ‘Chaise Longue’ and ‘Wet Dream’ along with newly released tracks ‘Too Late Now’ and ‘Oh No’.

Watch the four-track set below.

The duo have just announced details of their self-titled debut album, which will arrive on April 8 via Domino.

Speaking about new song ‘Too Late Now’, Teasdale explained: “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.”

The band’s debut album was also largely recorded in April 2021, before the release of their buzzy summer single, ‘Chaise Longue’. 

“I guess how it happened was unconventional,” Chambers said of the album.

“Wet Leg was originally just supposed to be funny,” added Teasdale. 

“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.”
