This month’s modern-day sirens known for finishing each other’s sentences and falafel. Hailing from the Isle of Wight, an island off the coast of southern England with a population of one hundred and forty-two thousand, Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers are known collectively as the indie-rock band Wet Leg. The duo attributes their unique personalities to growing up in the bubble of small island living.
When the band formed, Rhian and Hester worked full-time jobs as a fashion stylist’s assistant and Hester in the family jewellery business. Main lyricist Rhian is the more outspoken member of the duo, while her counterpart Hester brings whimsy and wisdom to their collaboration. In a mischievous manner, the duo shares several tall tales about the naming of their band.

The duo behind one of the UK’s hottest bands have spoken of their “unintentional” rise to fame, which started with a trip on a Ferris wheel.
Wet Leg’s Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers, from the Isle of Wight, first met as teenagers in college but were in their twenties when the band got together at a festival.
Teasdale tells ES Magazine: “We’d seen this Ferris wheel all weekend but never thought to get on it, and now all of a sudden, we were on it. We were looking into the night sky. It was very mystical. It felt like anything was possible.”
They started the band — named after an Isle of Wight nickname for people from the mainland — while holding down nine-to-five jobs. They hoped they might get a few gigs at festivals which would save them paying for “expensive” tickets to get into them.

Wet Leg’s self-titled debut album tipped to be one of the most critically-acclaimed releases of 2022 and is now nominated for this year’s Mercury Prize.
The duo of Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers have already notched up over 40 million global streams and over 9 million YouTube views, while Dave Grohl, Jack White and Lorde all count themselves as fans.
Neither Rhian Teasdale nor Hester Chambers intended for Wet Leg to change anything about their lives, for the music to travel anywhere. It’s the sort of faux-modest suggestion most new artists make, but for them, it rings true — they saw the band as a vehicle for free festival tickets.
When their video for ‘Chaise Lounge’ went semi-viral thanks to nostalgic millennials who had lived through 00s British indie and older people pleased that finally, someone was making real guitar music again, it took the pair pleasantly by surprise. The cottagecore aesthetic and off-kilter humour felt current. Combined with the fact that everyone had spent the best part of a year and a half wasting away inside waiting for the summer of love that never happened, the debut single captured the slightly demented public mood.

The insularity and innocence of the first lockdown on the island was the ideal safe space for the pair to create Wet Leg. They could reflect on the past but also make something articulated where they were now, suspended in time, as the pandemic stretched indefinitely. Their album cover depicts them in school uniforms, and lyrics on multiple songs are reminiscent of university or teenage years to speak to their child-like entry into proper adulthood around 30 — or rather, show how similar the reality is for a generation without the means to grow up.
