Ting Tings: 'Our album is strange'

By
Ting Tings
The Ting Tings have described their new album as "strange".

The group insist that they are pleased with the outcome of the record, claiming that every song has a completely different sound to it - from Depeche Mode to TLC.

Singer Katie White told Bang Showbiz: "It’s like every song on the album is completely different to the song that is played after it. So we will have one song that’s like dark, dance Depeche Mode, and another that sounds like Nancy Sinatra or TLC, like a '90s girl group.

"It’s a very strange album, and we’re really glad it’s turned out this way, we didn’t plan it that way but that’s how it came about."

The band also confessed that while planning the album in Berlin they developed an obsession with '70s pop group Fleetwood Mac.

She continued: "We were listening to The Pet Shop Boys, The Smiths, The Cure and Fleetwood Mac - loads of Fleetwood Mac, we got obsessed with their harmonies and stuff."

Jules De Martino added: "We felt like we wanted to make our album so that every time the next song comes along, it was refreshing, just like when you make your own compilation album."

The Ting Tings’ new single ‘Hands’ is out October 11.
