“It’s been such a whirlwind for us as a band,” Wet Leg’s Rhian Teasdale explained about their choice of cover. “So I think we chose to cover ‘Life Is A Rollercoaster’ just because we felt like we could relate to the sentiment of it. Kinda goes hand in hand with another motto that we live by, of ‘Feel the fear and do it anyway’.
“It’s been such a wild and unexpected ride for us since starting Wet Leg, and we’re all ’90s babies, so we’ve grown up with Ronan Keating on the radio — so it seemed appropriate.”
Wet Leg’s cover of ‘Life Is A Rollercoaster’ has now received the seal of approval from Keating himself, who tweeted “love it” earlier this morning.
