Grungier than ever, the duo's new album, "Sounds from Nowheresville", is accompanied by dark, violent music videos and a tour that involves front woman Katie White haphazardly throwing every piece of musical equipment that she can find. If this is your idea of fun, "Sounds from Nowheresville" may be the soundtrack to your summer.
Yet, the band's sophomore album has met mixed reviews. Messier than "We Started Nothing", "Sounds From Nowheresville" is closer to the punk scene that originally brought duo Katie White and Jules De Martino together. While it's probably not what fans of The Ting Tings' cleaner, poppier sound expected, it suits the duo's attitudes. White and De Martino discuss their confidence in their eclectic sophomore album in today's episode of World Cafe.
