The song became a major success garnering millions of streams across various streaming platforms and views for its official video.
Following the song’s success, the band announced via Domino in November 2021 that they would be releasing their debut album. The songs “Too Late Now” and “Oh No” were released on the same day. The album was finally released on Friday, April 8, and has received praise from the fans. There is no doubt about their future in the music industry.
If simple ever made a resounding statement, Wet Lag’s debut album does it better. The new “Wet Lag” album cover is one of the simplest yet intriguing covers today. The cover art features members Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers with their backs turned to the camera and hands held across their backs. The cover art shows so much, including unity and peace.
Like most rock albums released this year, Wet Band delivers their debut album solo. Many bands are known to have gone entirely solo on their debut projects. It helps register their sound as newcomers on the Rock scene. They deliver all 12 tracks of the album solo.

The song became an instant success following its release. It garnered millions of streams across various streaming platforms, with the song’s official music video gaining millions of views on YouTube.
For a first release, the song gained the band a lot of acclaim across various popular publications after it went viral online. Three months after the song’s success, Wet Lag released the album’s second official single, “Wet Dream” on September 28. They promoted the song with a self-directed music video. The song will be promoted to alternative radio in the United States later on April 19.

Originality that’s what this band brings out.Something that is severely lacking in corporate run music. With punk vibes this is going to be big because it is different and it is good.
Someone really needed to teach America to say Chaise Longue
Good luck getting these songs out of your head! Wicked post punk feel power.
