The Whip "Trash" from XLR8R Magazine on Vimeo.
Nothing says indie music Halloween more than black hair, angry lead singers, and strange neon faces beaming through dark backgrounds. Such are the elements of "Trash," lead single off The Whip's debut album, X Marks Destination (you might also recognize the track from way back in 2006, when it appeared on Kitsuné's Maison 3 compilation). The video may start in a fairly ordinary fashion, just the four members of the Manchester, U.K.-based outfit slugging away at their instruments, but something rather creepy happens towards the end. Suffice to say, I would not want to be in a dark room facing a hundred furry creatures clad in the aforementioned neon masks and teetering on the brink of revolt. Jennifer Marston
