While this space boasts plenty of room to host a party, vocalist Katie White decides to sing and dance alone. For the choreography, the Tings Tings had turned to reliable dancing duo I COULD NEVER BE A DANCER (Kylie Minogue, Pet Shop Boys) — a sound decision, given how the video turns out. Blinking lasers scan through White as if she’s a grocery-store item, though she isn’t fazed. Instead, as she sports a black bodysuit and big, Donna Summer-inspired hair (she’s searching for a name to call this style, by the way), White appears confident as she poses, spins and boogies to the ’70s disco-inspired song.

Initially, fans of the Manchester duo may feel the same way of “Wrong Club,” off the Ting Tings’ forthcoming third album due this fall. Written and recorded in Ibiza with Duran Duran‘s Anthony Taylor, the new song is ’70s disco, laced with Philadelphia soul – a far cry from the Ting Tings’ founding, brassy dance-pop, and, as some fans pointed out, a dead ringer for Daft Punk‘s own throwback “Get Lucky.” But the more Ting Tings protest (“I’m in the wrong life, get me out of this”), the more this throwback actually feels like theirs.
From “That’s Not My Name” to “Shut Up And Let Me Go” and now this, the Ting Tings have always known how to make themselves heard, even with all the other noise out there. Hear “Wrong Club” before its July 28 release below. More »
Perhaps The Ting Tings waited so long to release their sophomore album, they began to deteriorate while posing for their album cover? That’s the only reason we can come up with for this crudely drawn cover art for Sounds From Nowheresville, the Brit duo’s follow-up to their smash debut We Started Nothing. Actually, the real story about how this morbid cover and its equally absurd title came to be awaits you below. More »
“We’re not the loudest band in the room… you know, whip cream guns strapped to my tits, like how pop people are,” Katie told us during our exclusive sit-down with the band. “We’re quiet in the little details, which I think is our way of being ballsy.”
We would certainly describe the British duo as having some serious guts. Instead of sticking strictly to the brassy dance-pop that turned “That’s Not My Name” and “Shut Up And Let Me Go” into radio smashes, the band stretched for eclecticism this time around. They drew inspiration from TLC to Fleetwood Mac to cheesy movie themes from the 80s to create what they call their “playlist album”. Head below for details on the Ting Tings’ latest, and why living in Berlin in the wintertime might not have been such a great idea in retrospect. More »
British indie pop duo Ting Tings teamed up with Tommy Hilfiger for a frangrance aptly titled LOUD. Not only did the “Hands” group put their fingerprints on the fragrance line’s signature scent, they also hand a hand in the spray cologne’s ad campaign with their tune “We Are Not The Same”. Jump below to check out a behind the scenes look at the making of the new campaign ad and head here to catch the finished “fun with duct tape” commercial.
