Wet Leg Drops New Music Video for “Oh No”
- British alt-pop band Wet Leg, consisting of Rhian Teasdale (lead vocals/guitar) and Hester Chambers (guitar), has dropped a new music video for “Oh No” directed by Wet Leg themselves.
The song was released last November from their upcoming self-titled debut album.
It was written by Rhian Teasdale and produced by Daniel Carey.
“It's been a pretty wild ride for us these past few months, we never really thought much past actually making music and playing gigs,” Rhian Teasdale said. “It's quite an odd thing to suddenly open yourself to so much criticism and praise alike. The comments that complete strangers will leave on our videos are so funny and range wildly in sentiment. Although we know it is bad for us to read them and we try to avoid it, sometimes it's irresistible when you're on your own; the 3 a.m. doom scroll really gets you.”
- She continued, “For this video, we have obsessively selected our favorite bits from the comments sections across our socials — the good, the bad, the ugly — and have repurposed them to make something new. It has been quite cathartic, actually.”
She added, “The video was shot on the Isle of Wight at the bottom of a chairlift that you can take from the top of the cliff. The rope costume - made by costume designer Kate Tabor - weighed an absolute tonne and it took three of us to carry it down the cliff to shoot. We'd each grab onto a limb, and after 20 minutes of heavy lifting managed to get it down the steep steps leading to the beach. We're thinking of starting it up as a work-out class for alternative types.”
The debut album is set to be released on April 8, 2022.
