Pearl Jam covered Wet Leg’s Chaise Longue during a show at Madison Square Garden in September.
Hester Chambers and Rhian Teasdale of Wet Leg spoke with NME about the Pearl Jam cover. “It’s just strange when people know that you exist, who you wouldn’t have thought would know you exist,” Rhian said. “It’s pretty wild.”
Wet Leg is currently touring across 21 countries and has 78 upcoming concerts. Their next tour date is tomorrow at Magazzini Generali in Milan, after that they’ll be at Mascotte in Zürich.
