ABOUT US

MUSIC: Review: Wet Leg: ‘Wet Leg’

“Buoyed by the popularity of last year’s viral hit single ‘Chaise Longue’, Wet Leg have quickly become one of the most exciting new bands in the country. The Isle of Wight duo, consisting of vocalist Rhian Teasdale and guitarist Hester Chambers, have enjoyed critical and commercial success for their quirky, playful brand of indie pop. It hasn’t all been sunshine and roses for the pair, however.”

Our very own Harry Featherston is gracing us with a new music review for the @wetlegband album!

NEW IN MUSIC 💬

Sexualisation of Women in the Music Industry 

*Content Warning: Extensive discussion of sexual assault*

“Women are often hypersexualised within both traditional and new forms of media, from Curley’s wife and her red lipstick signifying danger in Of Mice and Men to Kim Kardashian’s rapid rise to fame often being accredited to her sex tape. 

“The hyper sexualisation of women often includes often involves women being depicted in a light of sexual objectification, the emphasis is placed on the sex appeal of the female body. No matter what the industry, one thing can be agreed upon: sex sells.”

In the second part of this series, Sophie Mouzakitis explores and examines the current representation of the music industry and its problems.
