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).
