Fans of Wet Leg’s humor and infectious pop hooks will love these eclectic post-punk, indie rock, and punk picks.
by Wet Leg
Wet Leg is a British indie rock band consisting of Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers. Their debut single “Chaise Longue” went viral in 2021, bringing in millions of streams and video views. Currently, the music video has over 8 million views and everyone from Elton John to Iggy Pop has been singing their praises. Wet Leg’s debut album is the 7th most collected album on Discogs in 2022. Loved for its memorable hooks, silly lyrics, and witty retorts, this indie rock album would be a great addition to your collection. The quirky selections below are also great options if you need more music like Wet Leg.
by Florence And The Machine
Dance Fever is Florence + The Machine’s latest album and currently sits among the top 25 most collected albums on Discogs this year. This album features some of Welch’s most personal lyrics and an abundance of religious imagery (devils, holy war, angels, etc.) as she wrestles with her sense of self and her public image. Similar to Wet Leg, this album takes aim at social expectations for women and flips the script. Fun fact: When Wet Leg’s debut single “Chaise Longue” took off, Welch endorsed the track and now Wet Leg is an opener for Florence + The Machine’s US tour.
by Dry Cleaning
Stumpwork is Dry Cleaning’s latest album and expands on their post-punk sounds with industrial noise, bass-heavy funk, and sax-powered psychedelic rock. Fans of Wet Leg will enjoy the moments of silliness this album delivers. For example, Florence Shaw speak-sings, “I will risk slow death for a Chinese spring roll” and “Is it still OK to call you my disco pickle?”. If you also use humor to cope with the mess that can sometimes be life, this album is worth a listen.
by Fontaines D.C.
A lot has changed for Fontaines D.C since they skyrocketed to success. Now living in England, the Dublin band channels that displacement into their most recent album, Skinty Fia. This album explores themes of longing and alienation and has a moodier and more melodic sound than their previous works. In addition to sharing the same producer as Wet Leg, this album is also one of the most collected albums on Discogs this year. Fans of Wet Leg will enjoy the melodic indie pop, folk, and electronic sounds Fontaines D.C weave into their post-punk foundations.
On All Fours
by Goat Girl
Dig a little deeper into Wet Leg’s recommendations on Discogs and you will find Goat Girl. On All Fours is the most recent album by this English post-punk band. In a similar style to Wet Leg, this album is full of tongue-in-cheek humor and uses wit to cope as they sing about living in an ever uncertain socio-political world. Fun fact: This album was produced by Dan Carey, who also produced records by Fontaines D.C. and Wet Leg.
NewDad is an indie rock band from Ireland whose five singles in 2020 generated over two million streams on Spotify. Like Wet Leg, their songs were added to the A List at BBC 6 Music and the band did a live session for Steve Lamacq. Since then, the band released their debut EP Waves followed by their most recent EP, Banshee. Their dreamy guitar waves mixed with half spoken, half sung vocals make it no surprise that fans of NewDad cross paths with those of Wet Leg.
High Risk Behaviour
by The Chats
High Risk Behaviour is the debut studio album by Australian punk rock band The Chats. They call their sound “shed rock” and this album is full of chaotic energy, unruly fun, and lyrics designed to provoke a reaction. When asked where Wet Leg singer Rhian Teasedal drew inspiration for her lyrical approach, she pointed to their tracks like “Drunk and Disorderly” and “The Clap” for having “that great thing where they’re really silly — but cool.”
