Last week (February 28), the band shared a new track called ‘Angelica’.
The group described the song, which is about Teasdale’s oldest friend, as a mixture of “the absurd”, “the sardonic”, “social angst” and “a a trippy, synth-kissed journey through parties and regrets.”
Teasdale added: “It’s laced with disenchantment. Even though the chorus is ‘good times, all the time’. That’s just impossible, isn’t it?”
The song will feature on ‘Wet Leg’, the group’s debut album which is set for release this April, alongside previous singles ‘Chaise Longue’, ‘Wet Dream’ and ‘Oh No’.
The group also have a number of live dates coming up this summer, which you can check out here. Wet Leg have been added to the line-up for SXSW Festival 2021 and this year’s BBC Radio 6 Music Festival.
Last week, it was also announced that the duo would appear at this year’s Glastonbury Festival.
