Pitchfork

For a reasonable price, English indie-pop duo the Ting Tings are selling anti-establishment "fuck you"'s by the bottle. Plus some barely serviceable party tunes. And, oh yeah, they're kinda sexy, too. Actually, it's tough to tell exactly which readymade, tongue-in-cheek pop angle they're adopting, but the duo's genesis unequivocally stems from a mutual jadedness towards the record industry. Both Katie White and Jules De Martino cut their t

eeth in teenage pop groups only to see their music career as adults hamstrung by bum record deals and one false start after another. Bent on seeking vengeance, the pair packs loads of not-so-subtle jabs at the industry into their spotlight-hungry debut, but despite the tough talk, they can't avoid sounding like the simplistic saccharine pop lifers they are.

Really fun, quirky pop music with an organic touch. Katie's interesting voice pairs well with many of the tracks. Not all the songs are perfect, but overall an extremely strong effort. Actually gets better with time, unlike most pop/rock songs from the late 00s.
