If you yearn for effortlessly cool and quirky novelty alt-pop songs then newcomers Wet Leg have the perfect product for your enjoyment in their first single “Chaise Longue”:

Wet Leg are Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers from the Isle of Wight off the south coast of England. “Chaise Longue” evokes a kind of thrillingly off-kilter hybrid of Plastic Bertrand’s bubblegum buzz-pop, and the cool-but-weird disinterest of post-punk dada pop band The Flying Lizards. Or, if those names from the distant past mean nothing to you, perhaps Wet Leg offer a more-strangely-sweet-than-sour variant on Dry Cleaning.

In any case “Chaise Longue” is excellent sardonically absurdist pop fun, with just the lightest undercurrent of menace.
