Wet Leg have shared a cover Ashnikko’s ‘Daisy’ as part of the Spotify Singles series. It’s paired with a reworking of their own track ‘Convincing’, which appears on their self-titled debut album. Take a listen below.
“I remember going to stay with Rhian around the time we recorded Chaise with Jon McMullen and she had told me about this artist she’d been listening to loads,” the band’s Hester Chambers said in a statement. “She sang and played ‘Daisy’ on the guitar in the morning while we had coffee. It feels like another little circle coming round in our Wet Leg world getting to make this cover.”
Commenting on the new version of ‘Convincing’, she added: “Most of our album was written in the depths of 2020, and right up to April 2021 when we went into the studio. Since live music has opened back up, we play some tracks just as they were recorded, but ‘Convincing’ is one of the songs that has gone through a little shapeshift over time as we’ve been playing gigs for the last year. This version we recorded with James leans into the more mellow and woozy world it exists in our live sets.”
