New(-ish) Video: The Ting Tings, ‘Great DJ’

How and why are you not watching this video? At SXSW this year, the Tings Tings were the biggest thing since barbecue. The British electro-dance duo are a mash-up of the Go! Team, CSS and Yelle. Plus, Blondie-alike Katie sorta looks like Hayley Williams’ big sister, Jules reminds us of James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem, for some reason, and the beginning of the song sounds like Eddie Money’s “Baby Hold On.” Because it does. They write a genuinely great band blog, and they had their fans call up and leave their names on an answering machine, and the results are gonna end up on their “That’s My Name?” B-side. Cuters!

Anyway, watch “Great DJ,” and read the Ting Tings’ mtvU.com interview here. Their album, We Started Nothing, comes out in May.
