they could never hold us down
- Who: The odd couple of Katie and Jules
- What: Reggae dance pop, like Santigold, Lily Allen, No Doubt
- Where: Manchester, UK + Facebook / Amazon
- When: Sounds From Nowheresville is out Feb. 27th in the UK and March 13th in the US.
- Why: Its been forever since we have heard from The Ting Tings and even longer since their 2008 debut, but after scrapping an albums worth of material recoded in Berlin they have emerged from their next stop in southern Spain with new songs for us. “Soul Killing” chronicles a bit of that record industry bull and sets it the best squeaky rocking chair beat I’ve ever heard. The shades of reggae work well on these two. It cuts the sugar a bit.
