Audio Vision: Hangin' With The Ting-Tings
Monday, October 31, 2011
To think I was about to post their mugs on a milk carton---The Ting Tings have a semi-new song/video and it's called, "Hang It Up". Simple as that, right? Not quite. It was said a year ago that the Brit duo were to follow-up their fabulously energized 2008 debut, We Started Nothing, with the once-titled-but-it's-been-changed-to-something-else sophomore album, with "Hands" as the debut single. "Hands" didn't clap (the acoustic version is mucho better), so "Hang It Up" looks to be the track to pull up the project by it's bootstraps. It's perfect enough with all the funky guitar work and catchy as the cold I have due to the cheerleading chant lyrics, so pretty much you're getting a good listening deal.
I'm just hoping the Tings won't be flash in the pans because you just don't make songs like "Shut Up & Let Me Go" and just vanish like that.
