The news comes one week after Wet Leg released their second single ‘Wet Dream’, which follows on from their debut track ‘Chaise Longue’.
Speaking to NME about their sudden success, Hester Chambers said: “We could have never predicted this. We do feel really lucky – but we still have no idea what’s happening. I think we’re just going to live in the moment as much as we can. I just can’t imagine things ever getting better than they are now.”
“We’ve been playing big stages that we haven’t properly grown into yet,” Chambers adds. “Even on a practical level it’s been a challenge; I’ve struggled with asking for what I want in my monitors and coping with the size of the crowds that have come to see us. But that’s OK. We’re always learning.”
