Wet Leg dance in a rope costume in new video for ‘Oh No’

Wet Leg have released a video for their recent single “Oh No.”

“Oh No” comes from Wet Leg’s highly anticipated self-titled debut album, out April 8th via Domino. Just like with the videos for “Wet Dream” and “Chaise Longue,” the band self-directed the video. Throughout the clip, Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers dance in an elaborate costume made of ropes.

“The video was shot on the Isle of Wight at the bottom of a charlift that you can take from the top of the cliff,” Teasdale explains of the new Wet Leg video. “The rope costume – made by costume designer Kate Tabor – weighed an absolute tonne and it took three of us to carry it down the cliff to shoot. We’d each grab onto a limb, and after 20 minutes of heavy lifting managed to get it down the steep steps leading to the beach. We’re thinking of starting it up as a workout class for alternative types.”

Watch the video for “Oh No” below.

“The comments that complete strangers will leave on our videos are so funny and range wildly in sentiment,” Teasdale continues. “Although we know it is bad for us to read them and we try to avoid it, sometimes it’s irresistible when you’re on your own; the 3am doom scroll really gets you. For this video, we have obsessively selected our favourite bits from the comments sections across our socials, the good, the bad, the ugly and have repurposed them to make something new – it has been quite cathartic actually.”
