The Ting Tings' 'weird synth' album
The Ting Tings' second album will be synth heavy.
The 'That's Not My Name' duo, who revealed that they named their follow up LP after a German massage parlour, said that initially the songs sounded different.
Jules De Martino, one half of the band alongside Kate White, also revealed the album will contain tracks entitled 'Hands' and 'Help'.
He added: "We listened back to some of the demos and we thought, hold on a minute, this is sounding too much like we're rocking out live.
"We bought a couple of old weird synths in New York and smuggled them in our suitcases back to Berlin and they started to come strong on the music."
The band recorded the album in Germany, a fact which inspired the album's title.
Jules told NME: "Just around the corner to our studio there's a massage parlour, it's called Massage Kunst.
"It's Massage Art, basically. We took a picture of that and sent it to our label, saying this is the title of the album. They went berserk."Posted on 13 Jan 2010 07:30 to category : Band / Celebrity News
