Isle of Wight band of the moment WET LEG, are set to play some very special headline dates alongside their much-anticipated, sold-out Splendour in the Grass set.
Armed with a string of incredibly catchy singles including Chaise Longue, Wet Dream, Too Late Now, Oh No and new single Angelica, WET LEG will play intimate shows at Howler in Melbourne and Oxford Art Factory in Sydney this July.
Formed in a moment of drunken clarity back in 2019, Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers created WET LEG while perched at the summit of a Ferris wheel, a fittingly quirky origin for the whimsical artistry to come.
WET LEG has since spawned an ever-growing catalogue of inimitable, chaotic alt/pop majesty with tracks like the crazily catchy ‘Chaise Longue’ swiftly going viral, sparking inclusions on ‘ones to watch’ lists everywhere and drawing a huge crowd to their first proper festival set at Latitude 2021.
From Ferris wheel to record deal, the debut release from the kaleidoscopic world of Wet Leg is due in April 2022 and set to raise moods across the globe.
With their US tour kicking off today and both festival and headline dates across the UK and Europe to follow, WET LEG will be in prime form when they bring their idiosyncratic artistry to Australia this July!
With special guests The Buoys
A fizzled-out Tinder date collided with a Gumtree ad, and from the flaming ashes rose The Buoys, the sweet and savory all-female Sydney outfit making noise across Australia. Provoked by workplace feuds, slow walkers on the footpath and a tonne of bad dates, The Buoys carve out a fresh space in the indie guitar scene, traversing the bounds from uncertainty to curiosity, disappointment to determination.
Taking 2021 by storm, The Buoys sold out headline tours across Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, with their latest single, ‘Bad Habit’ hailed as ‘the musical definition of a bullseye’ by Richard Kingsmill. Settling into their sound and cementing themselves as a force on stage, these gals continue to pave the way for fiery anthems and heart-jerking tunes alike, all wrapped up into one high energy set.
Recording their forthcoming body of work with Fletcher Matthews (Sweater Curse, CLEWS, Dear Seattle), The Buoys have embarked on a clear change of pace in their sonic outfit and savour all that comes with this exhilarating switch up: paying homage to the music you know and love, while leaving just enough room to steer their sound into unchartered waters
