IT WOULD be hard to find a band that had so few tracks but generated such a whirlwind of fan enthusiasm as Wet Leg did before their debut album, with only five tracks previously available on Spotify.
But as their self-titled record was released last Friday, their unwavering gang of supporters had more going on – and they did at the band’s gig at Brighton’s Chalk last night.
The show was presented by Resident Records as part of its in-store concert series, which always promise to be sweaty, heart-pounding affairs – and Wet Leg was no exception.
Led by founding members Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers, the band opened with the album’s lead track, Being In Love, to a raucous response from the sold-out crowd.
Rising through hits such as Angelica and Chaise Longue, the five-piece Isle of Wight band put on a show to rival the more seasoned indie bands, despite ditching the miserable stage presence often associated with artists today, instead he looked genuinely happy to be performing in front of a crowd.
The audience was there as well as the band, an electric atmosphere and a group at the forefront of celebrity who pulled out all the stops for an unforgettable evening.
And while it’s unclear if Wet Leg’s quirky, bass-driven brand of music would translate to arenas or stadiums nationwide, one thing is for sure, they’ve most certainly arrived for take over the UK club scene – and aren’t looking to leave anytime soon.
