The Ting Tings

<b>Will the Ting Tings finally break out, or is this the final nail in the over-exposed coffin?</b><br>
<br>
Don’t get us wrong, we’ve been <a href="http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/extendedplay/2008/03/sxsw-day-3-zoey.html">loving the Tings since Day One</a>. The duo’s spunky dance-pop is tightly crafted with hook and hook, and the act’s video for “Shut Up and Let Me Go” has a cool retro zest to it. But <a href="http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/extendedplay/2008/04/dear-columbia-p.html">we’ve also been concerned about their well-being</a>.<br>
<br>
Seems as if we can’t turn on the television without hearing the Tings in a commercial, be it one that’s selling MP3 players or a new fall TV show, and the Tings’ tunes appear to be a music supervisor’s best friend, as we’ve spotted the act in “ <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="ENTTV00000019" title="Gossip Girl (tv program)" href="/topic/entertainment/television/gossip-girl-%28tv-program%29-ENTTV00000019.topic">Gossip Girl</a>,” “American Teen” and others. Enough, we say, let the Tings just be a normal working band.

Enough, we say, let the Tings just be a normal working band.
