“We’re songwriters rather than celebrities.”

The Ting Tings‘ latest album, Super Critical, was a major departure from their typical dance-pop style.  With elements of funk and disco, Super Critical was independently recorded in Ibiza and co-produced with Andy Taylor (Duran Duran).

I caught up with sole members Katie White and Jules De Martino at South by Southwest this year to get the scoop on their Studio 54-inspired album, leaving their label, and dealing with album leaks.  Check out our Vinyl VIDEO below!

*Atlanta readers – Be sure to catch The Ting Tings on Monday at Terminal West – see ya there!

Emily is an over-enthusiastic lover of music, books, movies, fashion, and culture in general. Her love of music spans across all genres (what is a genre anymore? she waxes poetic to herself), though she was nursed on true punk and will never understand “redneck country” music – tractors are not and cannot be sexy. Emily currently lives in Brooklyn, NY and considers herself to be a great wit, though she is still waiting on validation from a credible source.
