Isle of White British band Wet Leg have won 2 BRIT Awards and 2 GRAMMYs in 2023. Wet Leg have started 2023 off with a bang, and they don’t look to be slowing down.
After a fantastic 2022, Isle of Wight natives Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers took home the BRIT Awards for Best New artist and Best British Group- beating the likes of Artic Monkeys, Nova Twins and The 1975. They also took home the GRAMMY’s for ‘Best Alternative Album’ (“Wet Leg”) and ‘Best Alternative Music Performance’ (“Chaise Lounge”) at the 65th Annual GRAMMY Awards.
Watch them collect the award for Best New Artist at the BRITS below.
Nominated against the likes of Arcade Fire and the Arctic Monkeys, these awards, and nominations, mark a huge milestone for the adored UK band and will likely be the first of many for the hitmakers.
They performed their hit ‘Chaise Longue’ at the BRIT Awards last night- watch below.
Described by Rolling Stone as ‘Relentlessly Catchy Post-Punk’, Wet Leg – who’s name comes from an Isle of Wight epithet to describe non locals – released their self-titled debut album via independent label Domino in April 2022 and quickly became one of the most critically acclaimed albums of 2022. Their debut single, ‘Chaise Lounge’, was released in June 2021, followed by single ‘Wet Dreams’ a few months later which both became viral hits. The bands increasing popularity and promotion of the album pushed them into a string of late-night show performances, with performances on Jimmy Kimmel Live and Later…With Jools Holland. 2022 also saw the band appear on NPR’s fabled Tiny Desk Concert and nominated for the coveted Mercury Prize.
