Wet Leg Premieres New Song “Ur Mum” on BBC Radio 1
- British alt-pop band Wet Leg, consisting of Rhian Teasdale (lead vocals/guitar) and Hester Chambers (guitar), premiered a new song “Ur Mum” on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Clara Amfo.
The song is the final promotional single from their upcoming self-titled debut album, which is out on April 8, 2022.
It was written by Rhian Teasdale and produced by Dan Carey.
“I was pretty angry at the way things had gone in this particular dynamic,” Rhian Teasdale said of the song in a statement. “It's just a diss song I wrote to make myself feel better. It worked.”
The accompanying music video was directed by Lava La Rue.
“The 'Ur Mum' video was all about bringing the viewer into the Wet Leg world – sprinkling details throughout the visual that not only reference at least 4 songs off the album but also plenty of inside jokes within the band too,” La Rue said in a press release. “Artistically it shows where the aesthetic of American indie films like Napoleon Dynamite fit perfectly in the scape of rural British settings – this concept first came to me when the band took me to IOW for the first time – I saw the connection and it all clicked into place.”
