Will the Ting Tings finally break out, or is this the final nail in the over-exposed coffin? Dont get us wrong, weve been loving the Tings since Day One. The duos spunky dance-pop is tightly crafted with hook and hook, and the acts video for Shut Up and Let Me Go has a cool retro zest to it. But weve also been concerned about their well-being. Seems as if we cant turn on the television without hearing the Tings in a commercial, be it one thats selling MP3 players or a new fall TV show, and the Tings tunes appear to be a music supervisors best friend, as weve spotted the act in Gossip Girl, American Teen and others. Enough, we say, let the Tings just be a normal working band.
