There are Tings, which are a cheese puff-like treat that all the kids I know seem to love. There is Ting Ting, the poster girl for the card game “Shadowfist”. Despite those notable tings, today we are going to talk about the new album from The Ting Tings, that I recently purchased as part of my summer music buying madness.
Do you miss the ladies of 80’s new wave? Good news, their spirit is alive and well in The Tings Tings CD “We Started Nothing”. Their lead singer has a style that reminds me of The Waitresses (“I Know What Boys Like”). It’s not quite singing, but it’s not quite rapping, it’s like talking….with style. I’m so cool that I don’t even need to sing. If you’re looking for deep lyrical complexity, or levels of emotional resonance, skip this album. But, if you’re like me, and missed that slightly edgy pop/rock that only the way too hip ladies of the 80’s could generate, then you must buy this disc now!
Thanks to My Space TV you can check out their first single “Shut Up and Let Me Go”.
