The Ting Tings’ New Video Is the Latest Sad Pop Song With a Killer Dance Routine

The band behind "Shut Up and Let Me Go" gets their boogie on

Nope, that’s not Helena from Orphan Black reenacting the breakdown from Britney Spears’ “Toxic” video — it’s British duo and Apple ad alumni the Ting Tings suffering from Saturday-night fever in the video for “Wrong Club,” a track from their forthcoming third album.

In “Wrong Club,” frontwoman Katie White sings about getting stuck in a rut while busting out moves that recall recent down-in-the-dumps work from other pop stars. For the 2011 warehouse romp “Call Your Girlfriend,” Robyn rolled out ground-humping somersaults and let elbows fly as she got caught up in a heartbreaking love triangle; for this year’s “Chandelier,” the elusive Sia recruited Dance Moms‘ Maddie Ziegler for some interpretive dance set to a track about drowning your sorrows in alcohol.

“Wrong Club” isn’t quite as dramatic — it’s about “feeling like you don’t fit in,” the band says — but its equally striking choreography is another reminder that the best way to work through your issues may be to dance like nobody’s watching (preferably in a skin-tight black bodysuit).
