The Whip - The Scala 19/11/08
The Whip are a band that still to my surprise are reasonably unheard of. Their sound is just right for the trends in the current music scene and with bands like Justice and Late of The Pier becoming so big over the last year that bands such as The Whip and Cut Copy won't be far behind. The Scala was absolutely heaving, rammed full of people of all different ages armed with glowsticks and dancing like hell to every song played, lapping up every minute of the pretty intense gig. Right from the word go the energy of the band and the crowd reflected each other creating a perfect atmosphere for The Whips easily recognizable sound. Their stage presence was also a high point especially for their closing song 'Trash' with the Bass player screaming at the crowd for more and the crowd responding well. With the Whip already making a sizable venue like the Scala look intimate it won't be long before they play and probably sell oout bigger venues.
