iTunes Review

The British dance duo of Jules de Martino and Katie White wander through the musical countryside nicking what they need with a casual authority that makes the outcome pleasurable and deliberately lightweight. "Silence" starts things; it's slightly hungover from the previous party. "Hang It Up" begins up with the opening flash of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" before reviving the awkward rock-rap category. "Guggenheim" furthers the rap influence with an insistence that the group will one day perform at the art museum. "In Your Life" turns in a nocturnal ballad that sounds like Nancy Sinatra discovering Tindersticks. The success of The Ting Tings' debut album left the duo skittish, trashing one album's worth of material for this one (the story's unclear of how much input the record company had in this decision). "Give It Back" ramps up the enthusiasm found in the infamous hit "That's Not My Name" from their debut album, We Started Nothing. This album's deluxe edition features demos, unreleased tracks, and remixes that double its playing time.

Customer Reviews




A somewhat complex pop record. You can hear the four year hiatus in every note of this record. The range of songs is well crafted. "In Your Life" is a melancholy gemstone with lush strings and haunting vocals where "Hang It Up" is a cacophony of bolstering pop sunshine with a storm approaching. A perfect follow up record for Ting Ting fans. Nice job.

I Thought They Would Out Do Sleigh Bells...

The Ting Tings really let me down in this album. This album has no theme what so ever, none of the songs really have much of a meaning. I felt that this album was just thrown together. None of the songs correspond to each other. It's like each song should be on a different album. Their sound is all over the place. "Day to Day" was a poor attempt at a Mandy Moore 90's pop song, "Guggenheim"... what the was that? The album should've been way less experimentive, and more edgy pop like "Soul Killing"; which accually sounds good. "Help" and "Hang It Up" were okay, but even if you did take out all the rest of the songs, those three songs don't even sound like they were all from the same album. The album was just all over the place.


Formed: 2006 in Manchester, England

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Named after a Chinese friend whose name sounds like the Mandarin pronunciation of "bandstand," the Ting Tings -- a scrappy, dance-oriented duo consisting of singer/guitarist Katie White and drummer Jules De Martino -- formed in the Salford district of Manchester, England in 2006. Prior to forming the group, the pair worked together in 2001 when White was in the all-female punk-pop group TKO and De Martino wrote some songs for them. Later the pair reunited, and with another friend formed the trio...
