Wet Leg have shared the music video for their newest single ‘Oh No’ – watch it below.

The video, shot in the duo’s hometown of the Isle of Wight, sees singer Rhian Teasdale and guitarist Hester Chambers manically dancing by the sea in a bulky rope costume.

Yellow neon lyrics appear in karaoke style writing as a speedy collage of YouTube comments, good and bad, flash on the screen.

The music video is directed by the band, with guitarist Joshua Omead Mobaraki also credited for the filming.

Speaking about the inclusion of YouTube comments, Teasdale said:Although we know it is bad for us to read them and we try to avoid it, sometimes it’s irresistible when you’re on your own.

“For this video, we have obsessively selected our favourite bits from the comments sections across our socials – the good, the bad, the ugly – and have repurposed them to make something new.”

She also spoke about the eccentric outfit custom designed by Kate Tabor in collaboration with band stylist Emma Lipop.

“[It] weighed an absolute tonne, and it took three of us to carry it down the cliff to shoot,” she said.

“We’d each grab onto a limb, and after 20 minutes of heavy lifting, managed to get it down the steep steps leading to the beach. We’re thinking of starting it up as a work-out class for alternative types.”

‘Oh No’ was released alongside ‘Too Late Now’ in November, with the new music video arriving ahead of their anticipated self-titled debut album which is due to be released April 8 via Domino.

Wet Leg are also set to play a string of in-store shows in April before they kick off their UK tour later in the month.
