With Jim Abbiss (Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian, Editors) on production duties for this debut long player, The Whip have created a wealth of dance floor ruptures and neon explosions all wrapped up in good old fashioned pop songs. And bloody good ones at that.
The opener and new single, ‘Trash’, is a tub-thumping ignition of hard beats, a fuzzy bass line that won’t quit and a hook that sounds like Gun Club and New Order. ‘X Marks Destination’ is the album for anyone urging the true evolution of the ‘nu-rave’ / indie-dace crossover genre that dominated last years’ trend-setters. For The Whip, it’s all about the here and now - they have taken these beginnings of a musical change and raised it to the next level for 2008.
This LIMITED EDITION version includes a bonus DVD of the band performing live in Manchester in 2007.
