Wet Leg – “Angelica” [Video]

| |

With the release of Wet Leg’s self-titled debut album just over a month away (due April 8th via Domino), the Isle of Wight duo (Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers) are pleased to unveil their new single “Angelica.”

Named after Rhian’s oldest friend, “Angelica” was recorded in Hester’s living room by bandmate Joshua Mobaraki. A mixture of the absurd (“She brought lasagne to the party”), the sardonic (“I don’t wanna listen to your band”) and social angst (“I look at my feet then I look for the door”), it’s a trippy, synth-kissed journey through parties and regrets. “It’s laced with disenchantment,” Rhian says. “Even though the chorus is ‘good times, all the time.’ That’s just impossible, isn’t it?”

The video – self-directed by the band – was shot on the island 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.

Several of the band’s US dates have been upgraded. Full details can be found below.
