The Ting Tings – We Started Nothing

British pop has never been this good. Katie White and Jules DiMartino are on the verge of going into the mainstream of UK pop music scene. Their smashing debut album titled “We started nothing” clearly presents an understatement from the group. The duo emerged from their squeaky little garage in the city of Salford, UK. Their music is quite unique from the usual pop slash rock slash dance anthems that were produced in the mainstream in years.

The Ting Tings are quite the underdogs because their music was not as popular as it sounds. Their debut single “Great DJ” wasn’t quite given attention to the UK music public because they’re music was produced by an indie label. But the success has yet to come when they moved into Columbia Records. Their second single “That’s Not My Name” came straight onto the #1 spot in the UK Singles Charts and proved that indie groups are now in the zone. Their album, “We started nothing” debuted also at the #1 spot in the UK albums charts.

The album is composed of 10 uniquely produced tracks that are incorporated by dance funky beats into the songs. Stand-out songs include “That’s Not My Name”, the iPod syndicated commercial anthem- “Shut Up And Let Me Go”, the quite not familiar title “Impacilla Carpisung” and the piano incorporated “We Walk”. Their beats are quite fascinating and astonishing. Their music is forced to be reckoned with. So if you are into unique pop dance rock music, you might well like this album. It’s definitely worth buying for. Unfortunately, the album is currently available in the UK and Europe only. I bet, this CD will become one of the most talked-about albums in the next few months or so.

BUZZMUSIC gives it a 4.5/5 rating.
