Wet Leg: "We didn’t set ourselves any boundaries. We’d just hit our guitars sometimes – actually hit them!"

Hester Chambers laughs when she is reminded of a recent headline in the NME: “Wet Leg: ‘We want to be recognised as guitar heroes’”. It’s funny, she says, because she and Rhian Teasdale – the other half of Wet Leg – are pretty much the exact opposite of the guitar hero archetype.

“I’m not really sure how that got to be the headline because we’d actually talked about how neither Rhian nor I are confident guitarists in the slightest!” she begins self-effacingly.
