The problem, according to White, was Berlin's current love affair with dance music.

When they first arrived, White and de Martino were inspired by it — until they turned on the radio and realized they were merely falling in line with the latest flavor of the month.

The Beastie Boys' 1989 landmark album "Paul's Boutique" seems at first like an odd muse for the Ting Tings Its platinum-selling singles ("That's Not My Name," "Shut Up and Let Me Go") owe more to Toni Basil than hip-hop.

But according to White, the group's lead singer and guitarist, it was the Beastie Boys' liberal use of every musical direction that clicked with her and bassist/keyboardist de Martino.

We’ve done hundreds of shows in the last year, which takes its toll after a while.” The Salford twosome, who will perform at this year’s Isle Of Wight Festival, have devised a stage show with screens rather than extravagant lighting.

Jules explained: “We’re using screens to highlight what we do on stage because there’s only two of us up there.” One of the bonuses of wearing shades is that nobody recognises Jules without them.

"We wanted every song to sound different," White said.
