“Chaise Longue” includes playful lyrics like, “I went to school and I got a degree/All my friends call it the big D,” as well as, “What are you doing sitting down?/You should be horizontal now.”
“Wet Dream” is perhaps even more cheeky, with lyrics asking, “What makes you think you’re good enough/To think about me/When you’re touching yourself?”
The unconventional nature of Wet Leg doesn’t stop at their lyricism. In a recent interview with Alternative Press about their upcoming album, Rhian Teasdale shares, “We’d recorded the whole album before we’d released our first single, so that was probably quite an unconventional way of doing things, but it was nice as well. Also, we hadn’t played any shows when we’d recorded it. We’d literally played like four shows ever with this band. It was quite nerve-wracking because it’s someone that I really, really admired, and I still do. The impostor syndrome hit pretty big time. Everything with this, you just have to feel the fear and do it anyway because I think everyone feels impostor syndrome.”
