The Whip debuted in 2006 with the single Frustration, a limited edition 7" issued by the British label Kids. They subsequently released several singles on record labels such as Kitsuné, before their debut album X Marks Destination emerged on 24 March 2008 on Southern Fried Records. The album was produced by Jim Abbiss, best known for his work with Björk, Kasabian and the Arctic Monkeys.
