Audacy is proud to welcome Indie darlings Wet Leg into the DTS Sound Space for a special performance and chat with Audacy's Klein and Ally, streaming online now and on-air on your favorite Audacy Alternative stations.
You know U.K. duo Wet Leg -- founded in 2019 by Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers -- for their smash debut single "Chaise Longue," but ever since their self-titled album debuted at number one in April of 2022 on the U.K. Albums, ARIA Albums, and Irish Albums charts, they've been quickly seeping into every corner of fans' psyches.
Now, after touring their home country and preparing a future sophomore release, they're getting ready to bring the music to even bigger masses when they join the one and only Harry Styles on tour in 2023.
While Klein had to look up whether their home, the Isle of Wight, was an actual place, Rhian admits she hopes it's real, "otherwise we're living in quite an illusion... delusion, or an illusion," although stepping out in front of audiences larger than their small town can still be a trip for both singers. "Not in a crippling way -- not in a panic attack way anymore," Rhian says of the nerves that come along with performing. "Generally," adds Hester.
Now reaping the rewards of all the hard work they put in after meeting in college ten years earlier, Hester explains, "it would be very difficult to make music and have fun with someone that you weren't on a good astral plane with, I think. We just feel really lucky. I think what is weird is that we met Ellis [Durand] our bassist, we went to college the three of us, and [guitarist] Joshua [Mobaraki], ten years ago, and now that we're here it is a really strange and wholesome feeling to think that we've kind of been doing music all this time, and just all of a sudden we're having the ride of our lives!"
