Last year I wrote a series of posts about bands I discovered that year, they were The Mysterines, Dream Wife and The Big Moon. I quite enjoyed writing that series, so I decided to repeat this for 2021 (and if I discover three good bands again next year I’ll aim to have one in 2022 as well). The first one for this year was new to pretty much everyone, as they had their breakthrough this year: Wet Leg. They burst on the scene this summer with this song with a famous movie quote and more:
This was followed up by another song with a video filmed at the same location and weird lyrics and references:
It doesn’t come with a full fledged video (yet?), but I also quite like this recently released song:
And finally, they also perform brilliantly live, as shown in this Tiny Desk (Home) Concert for NPR:
I hope you’ve enjoyed Wet Leg, for the next band we’ll travel across the Atlantic to Chicago and something beach related (kind of). Planning to publish that post on Friday.
