THE TING TINGS – If Hands is the single, is Body the album?

As some of you may now, Hands is the lead single of the second album Kunst (which means "art" in German) by The Ting Tings. It seems like ages go when The Ting Tings started preparing Kunst and nope, it’s not ready yet, but we have the great fortune of being able to hear their first and second singles. We can hear Hands and We’re Not The Same, which according to the band have a darker side than the songs that were part of their previous album We Started Nothing.

In my opinion, so far I think the band made a wrong choice with their second single, sadly, the songs from We Started Nothing really sounded much better than what their new material does, but I guess we’ll have to wait until we have the album in our hands and so we could be able to really judge their music. At this moment, we recommend The Ting Tings to search for a better sound, maybe not the same as their previous album, but definitely something better than the one that belongs to the direction they’re taking for Kunst. Because I LOVE Hands but We're Not The Same not so much.

There's an official video for Hands, but it seems Youtube doesn't want you to see it on my blog, so here's the acoustic version of the song (still great) and We're Not The Same, the two lead singles from  The Ting Tings Kunst:
