Exclusive Video: The Ting Tings live at the Islington Mill

The Ting Tings, Katie White (vocals, guitar and bass drum) and Jules De Martino (vocals, drums, electronics), formed as a two-piece during some house parties at Manchester's Islington Mill, an underground artist collective featuring all manner of creative talent (visual and musical). Their career has taken off with a 2007 appearance at the Glastonbury Festival, bring voted the #3 "Top 10 to Watch in 2008" by the BBC, and just this month with an iPod + iTunes commercial featuring "Shut Up and Let Me Go".

Called the "most exciting new band in the country" by NME, the Ting Tings are making their way to America this spring with a digital release of their debut record, We Started Nothing, releasing on 20 May 2008. Earning kudos for their charged live performance at SXSW this March from both the New York Times and the New York Post, the British band return to the U.S. and Canada in June for a batch of live shows in major cities. Full tour dates appear below.

In the meantime, PopMatters is proud to present the exclusive debut of the Ting Tings performing "Great DJ" live at the Islington Mill recently in Manchester.
