Am I correct in saying they are a non-shit Ting Tings?
I think I described them somewhere as Altered Images if they were influenced by Life Without Buildings. Apparently they started as an acoustic folky duo, which I can't imagine at all.
WOAH. They're like Ting Tings now? I must've missed that transition. Have you heard of Trust Rhymes With Crust or Armchair? Its quite bare. But so, so, so good. Oh.
Man. I am so in love with Thomas Tantrum. Like. It's embarrassing.
So I'm off.
I didn't say they are like the Ting Tings. In fact, they aren't. I only know the four singles and haven't really got much further yet, so it's entirely possible they'd be very believable acoustic.
If they'd responded to my email (wanting blog stuff feedback, admittedly, but still) I might have liked them that little bit more, of course. Their loss.
No, sorry, the first sentence was a reaction to the main post, the second sentence was directed at you. I just had to get the first sentence off my chest because it was bubbling away there.
I got a reply but man, it was really, really dull.
The four singles? Armchair, Shake It, Swan Lake and...? Pshandy? Rock It? I only know those three singles. As if there's another one. The bastards.
Ah, Work It's not out yet, non? I didn't know Pshandy was a single in its own right.
Armchair was their debut on Marquis. It's so nice.
but I'm loving the Swam Lake single ... I totally agree with the Life Without Buildings comparisons and I'm really looking forward to an album.
:-) Offset is great :-)
pretty excellent shouty-girl-wonk-pop. Comparisons to Ting Tings don't do them justice at all, really.
i met the cousin of the drummer on a train from bologna to munich. FACT
they are a lazy ting tings...i mean that front woman just needs to open her mouth a bit more when she sings!
They're lazy because she can't even be bloody bothered to open her mouth enough when she sings?
they were good. The guitarist had an awesome t-shirt on http://www.drownedinsound.com/articles/3904059
comparisons to ting tings overload!!!
The only other link i can think of is that the Ting-tings played BBC introducing stage at glasto aswell as other festivals last year. As have Thomas Tantrum this year.
Good band. Must have seen them (if you include solo projects) at least 20 times in Southampton over my 3 years at uni. I couldn't believe it when i switched bbc3 on sunday afternoon to see them on their Reading coverage.
Good band who deserve a bit of success in my view. Lovely guys too.
until they become big or get some attention.
but no, seriously, they are shit.
can you confirm one more time that it's your serious opinion please?
as we speak
Ha, I love this reference and would've said so but now it turns out I know you enjoying this strain of conversation makes me feel dirty.
As you were.
Oh, as an aside, I swear down Nicky Wire (funnily enough) once said The Beta Band were shit because they'd never make a number one record. What a cunt that man is.
