With the release of Wet Leg’s self-titled debut album now just over a month away (due April 8th), the Isle of Wight duo (Rhian Teasdale & Hester Chambers) are pleased to unveil their new single, “Angelica”.

Named after Rhian's oldest friend, “Angelica” was recorded in Hester's living room, by bandmate Joshua Mobaraki. A mixture of the absurd (“She brought lasagne to the party”), the sardonic (“I don’t wanna listen to your band”) and social angst (“I look at my feet then I look for the door”), it's a trippy, synth-kissed journey through parties and regrets.

"It's laced with disenchantment," Rhian says. "Even though the chorus is 'good times, all the time'. That's just impossible, isn't it?”

The video – self-directed by the band – was shot on the Island and is an unbridled record of Rhian and Hester’s friendship complete with high-kicks, fisticuffs, kiss-and-make ups, vast amounts of hair and even more dancing.
