NEWS: Wet Leg share new video for ‘Oh No’ and announce run of UK instores

Wet Leg have shared the video for their song ‘Oh No’, which knowingly dismembers the tidal wave of ditritus they experience whilst doom scrolling, into a stompy impish singalong tune. Like their videos for ‘Chaise Longue‘ and ‘Wet Dream‘, the video for ‘Oh No‘ was self-directed. Teasdale says of making it: “It’s been a pretty wild ride for us these past few months, we never really thought much past actually making music and playing gigs. It’s quite an odd thing to suddenly open yourself to so much criticism and praise alike. The comments that complete strangers will leave on our videos are so funny and range wildly in sentiment. 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; the 3am doom scroll really gets you. 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 – it has been quite cathartic actually.

Continuing, Rhian adds: “The video was shot on the Isle of Wight at the bottom of a chairlift that you can take from the top of the cliff. The rope costume – made by costume designer Kate Tabor – weighed an absolute tonne and it took three of us to carry it down the cliff to shoot. 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.”
 

Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers aka Wet Leg only released their debut single, ‘Chaise Longue‘, in June 2021, since then the four songs they have shared with the world (‘Wet Dream’, ‘Too Late Now’ and ‘Oh No’ followed ‘Chaise Longue’) have clocked up 4.5 million views on YouTube.

Alongside the new video, Wet Leg have announced a run of gigs at UK record shops including London, Bristol, Nottingham and Birmingham around the release of their debut album Wet Leg (due April 8th). These instore shows are on sale now from individual record stores. Also, their forthcoming Koko show in London has been moved to Electric Ballroom.
