As if any further proof was needed of just how hot the new band scene along come Wet Leg to trump everybody. Their Chaise Longue track is a genius slice of indie minimalism driven buy an incessant drum machine and an impatient bass .
The Isle of Wight duo of Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers debut single is deadpan, cheeky and slightly salacious post-punk that is very much doing its own thing with distant relatives like the newly rediscovered Delta 5 and Au pairs from way back in the punk rock wars or the wonderful Dry Cleaning in these modern times.
The duo now signed to the great Domino label are very much dealing their own style though and the brilliant lyrics and driving song that explodes into a climactic frenzy at key points is the most startling debut release of the year. They are playing festivals soon and already look set to be one of the key bands this autumn.
The video is really ace as well…
