Wet Leg have announced details of their anticipated debut album, as well as sharing two new tracks from the record.

The Isle of Wight duo, comprised of Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers, will release their self-titled debut on April 8 via Domino.

New tracks ‘Oh No’ and ‘Too Late Now’ mark the latest releases to arrive from Wet Leg‘s debut, following on from stand-out singles ‘Chaise Longue’ and ‘Wet Dream’.

Speaking about ‘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 and produced by Speedy Wunderground’s Dan Carey in April 2021 – which means it was finished before their debut single ‘Chaise Longue’ was first unveiled last summer.

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

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