THE TING TINGS–known for their massive hits “That’s Not My Name” and “Shut Up and Let Me Go,” among others–approached this new album differently. Feeling uninspired, the two–Katie White and Jules De Martino–sought out an adventure in late 2012 which took them to Ibiza. As it turned out, unleashing their party spirit was exactly the impetus and momentum needed to craft something special and true to the starting spirit of their musical adventures. The result is SUPER CRITICAL, a hook-stuffed, introspective, modern disco record.
Fans were first given a glimpse into the group’s new direction when they released the album’s first single “Wrong Club.” Check out the song’s music video below. “Wrong Club” addresses their frustrations with current club music. Katie explains, “It’s about what happened to nightclubs that made them not sexy, how the tempo became so fast that nobody moves any more, they just jerk, its gesture not rhythm. We wanted to make a song that felt exactly like the opposite of that. It’s very Ting Tings to do a sad song with uplifting music. That’s just who we are.” More recently, the music video for the song “Do It Again” became the first ever to premiere via WeTransfer. Watch it now here.
