The Ting Tings At The Neptune, 3/29
If any one band could pull off a Sunday night show and get a crowd out of their houses and into their dancing shoes, it would be The Ting Tings. The funky-pop-rock British band may only have two members, but their stage energy and charisma has the effect of so much more.
The Ting Tings rose to fame with their contagiously addicting breakout single, “Shut Up and Let Me Go,” back in 2008 and they have since been producing tunes that are just as catchy, if not more. Their branding of indie pop dance music is instantly recognizable by Katie White’s fierce British accented singing-rapping vocals and Franz Ferdinand-esque guitar riffs. All the while, Jules De Martino holds everything down the drums, his positive spirit, and perfectly augmented supporting vocals.
Throughout the night, the two musicians graced us with classic Ting Tings tracks and new favorites. With everyone enthusiastically dancing and singing along, and no angry moshers, it may have been one of the happiest shows I have witnessed.
