Wet Leg Release New Single, ‘Angelica’, Along With A Fun Music Video

With the release of Wet Leg’s self-titled debut album just over a month away on April 8th, the Isle of Wight duo comprising Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers are pleased to unveil their new single, ‘Angelica’. You can stream and download it here.

Named for Rhian’s oldest friend, ‘Angelica’ was recorded in Hester’s living room by bandmate Joshua Mobaraki. A mixture of the absurd and social angst, it’s a trippy, synth-kissed journey through parties and regrets. Speaking of the track,. Rhian said,

“It’s laced with disenchantment. Even though the chorus is ‘good times, all the time.’ That’s just impossible, isn’t it?”

The video, directed by the band themselves, was shot on the Isle of Wight and is an unbridled record of Rhian and Hester’s friendship complete with high-kicks, fisticuffs, kiss-and-make ups, vast amounts of hair and even more dancing.
