Wet Leg's newest music video showcases "the good, the bad and the ugly" of the duo's social media comments.
Indie rockers Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers, aka Wet Leg, have dropped a new self-directed video for 'Oh No'.
The new offering from the British pair marks the latest in a string of single releases from their self-entitled LP, set to drop on April 8.
The pulsing, off kilter number is evocative of Wet Leg's unique set of inspirations, including The Ronettes, French disco, and Bjork.
The video shows the two in the Isle of Wight, dancing at the bottom of a chairlift in costumes made of rope. As a type of catharsis, the video showcases "the good, the bad and the ugly" of social media comments Wet Leg have received over the past few fame-garnering months.
"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," Teasdale said of the visuals.
"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, it has been quite cathartic actually."
Following the album release, Wet Leg are going out on a largely sold-out UK tour with support from fellow indie group Honeyglaze.
