The Ting Tings, one of British pop’s biggest recent success stories, are about to begin their second attack on our charts.

Watch online now here: I. “Wrong Club” appears on THE TING TINGS’ third studio album continues to gain major support at HOT AC radio, this week breaking into the Mediabase Top 30.“Wrong Club” has already been playlisted at Sirius XM’s “Venus,” Mix 101.9/Chicago, KLLC (Alice)/San Francisco, KALC (Alice)/Denver, Fresh94/D.C., WBMX/Boston, WWMX/Baltimore, KAMX/Austin among many others.De Martino and White regrouped, working on their own music and others' at Salford's music commune The Islington Mill.Quickly signed to the local indie label Switchflicker Records, the Ting Tings released their debut single, "That's Not My Name," in the spring of 2007.Through the following year, they conquered the UK airwaves with hits including 'Great DJ’, 'That’s Not My Name’ and 'Shut Up and Let Me Go’.

When the latter song was used in an i Pod ad they became a hot property in America, Japan and beyond and by the end of last year, they’d shifted two million copies of their album, 'We Started Nothing’, and four million singles — astonishing figures for a new pop act in the age of illegal filesharing.

Along the way, they also picked up an Ivor Novello award, and a Grammy nomination.

Amid all that global expansionism, one might’ve expected them now to have left their roots far behind them.

In August 2010, the Ting Tings offered a taste of their new material, premiering the single "Hands" -- which was mixed by Calvin Harris -- on BBC Radio 1 and officially releasing it that October.

The fun British pop duo The Ting Tings are probably best remembered for their catchy song "That's Not My Name" which had incredible success in 2008, but alive and still kicking today, the group has a few more secrets than just what their names might be (which are Katie White and Jules De Martino, for the record).

Their first records were put together according to a thrifty DIY aesthetic, whereby they created all their sound using loops, basic computer technology, a cheap guitar, De Martino’s miniature drum kit and White’s shouty singing.
