The Ting Tings - New album ‘Sounds From Nowheresville’

Platinum selling British electro-pop duo The Ting Tings are returning with the release of their long awaited new album ‘Sounds From Nowheresville’ which is locally distributed by Ivory Music & Video, the exclusive licensee of Sony Music in the Philippines.

The Ting Tings trademark which inspired the album title for bandmates Katie White and Jules De Martino is simple; to make tracks that sound different to the one before; to have musical freedom and to be held by no boundaries.

‘Sounds From Nowheresville’ didn’t come quickly to Katie and Jules. After achieving worldwide success with their debut album ‘We Started Nothing’ the duo spent a relentless two years touring before eventually returning to the studio. Following a brief spell in Berlin where they recorded and subsequently ditched a whole batch of songs they weren’t happy with; The Ting Tings packed their bags and landed in Southern Spain where they threw out the rule books and made music that made them happy.

Jules said: “Everything before then had been a struggle. Suddenly it wasn’t. Everytime Katie went up to the booth she was nailing it. The lyrics were happening. The whole weight of our shoulders was lifted. This was enjoyable again. It was being dictated by its own energy again.”

The Ting Tings launched themselves into the world with their DIY hardcore-pop in 2008 to massive acclaim and success, with their no1 singles ‘That’s Not My Name’ and ‘Shut Up And Let Me Go’ along with ‘Great DJ’ selling over 4 million copies worldwide. Their music became the soundtrack not only on the radio but also to countless shows and films from ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ to the likes of ‘Gossip Girl’.

The Ting Tings debut album went on to sell over two million copies. They also won the prestigious Ivor Novello Award for ‘Best Album’ in 2009 and received a Grammy Nomination for ‘Best New Artist’.
