Manchester s The Whip have been making a name for themselves
across the pond with their limb-loosening gigs at festivals and shows all across the UK! Seamlessly meshing an innate indie rock sensibility with modern electro, the band has started the buzz stateside with appearances at SXSW and CMJ and already received accolades from the likes of Pitchfork, BrooklynVegan, Blender.com, Spin.com, Wired.com, NME and many more!
Their debut release X Marks Destination is a seamless collage of 80 s. Looped lyrics and hypnotic hooks of lead single Trash lead into the prickly electro-power ballad Save My Soul and Sirens followed by the robot rock of Blackout and the driving moodiness of Frustration , X Marks Destination is a tour de force of the sounds of a band poised for greatness. Round out the set with dance floor detonators Sister Siam and Fire and you ve got a laser-guided missile of an album ready to blow up!

standout track - shinichi remix of blackout.
fun british electroclash. RIYL the following musicblogs: pandatoes, discopunk, sex4ears
Some uneccesary song versions and bad remixes.

"2 good songs 'Muzzle#1' and 'Blackout' are partially ruined in this CD. 'Muzzle#1' has an idiotic music change (comparing to music clip) when a singer sings "I'm moving for no one, the lights have started shining on in...". 'Blackout' is a complete different version from music clip. It's not bad, but my point is that the video version was so good that CD version does not sound well in comparison! 4 remixes sound cheap, I always skip them.
Overall, 'X Marks Destination' is good. Additional songs like 'Frustration' and 'Sirens' are as good or even better than 'Trash'.
