Wet Leg – Wet Dream

The Band:
Wet Leg are a British duo, Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers. They come from the Isle of Wight and are signed to Domino Records. Following almost a decade of friendship (Teasdale and Chambers met at college, and played in various bands and as fledgling solo musicians on their native Isle Of Wight), the pair took a ferris wheel trip at 2019’s End Of The Road festival. It is here where they found the embryonic elements of Wet Leg after seeing IDLES storm the main stage that evening.
Arming themselves with guitars, effervescent imaginations and a shared love of the The Ronettes and Jane Birkin, through to Ty Segall and Bjork, they set about making some recordings of their own. In June (2021), the British duo unveiled their debut single for Domino, Chaise Lonuge. Reception around the track was strong, generating some buzz around their name. The song, which has racked up 3 million streams and a million video views, was produced by Jon McMullen and mixed by Alan Moulder while the music video was directed by the band themselves.

The Band:
Ever since the Scottish “soaring-ambient-dreampop-experimental-folk” band began releasing music more than three years ago, Constant Follower’s emotionally honest and pain-stricken, yet warm, lyrics have become one of the project’s most endearing and beloved qualities.  The name of the outfit itself is a reflection of those things that we carry through life, for better or worse, that ultimately define who we are.
As a teenager, McAll woke in hospital to find he had survived an attack by a gang that left him with a catastrophic head injury and every memory of his childhood gone. The next decade was spent in a cabin on the West Coast where Hebridean air was whipped in with the time to reflect and recover, eventually allowing him to begin songwriting again. The songs were originally recorded as raw ideas – thoughts and feelings forged in fleeting moments and recorded onto old cassettes as the wind howled outside.
