Secret Weapon is the first single to be taken from The Whip's landmark second album "Wired together".
In many ways Secret Weapon is the most commercial offering from the three-piece Manquinien outfit. With it's indie pop-synth verses and huge sing along chorus this track has more hooks than your local B&Q.
But wow-there treacle-slit, this ain't no pop ditty! The Whip are back and they mean business. "Wired Together" has a real dirty dark side to it and this does shine through even on "Secret Weapon".
Bru, Fee and Nathan have just played three sell out UK dates, Ibiza & Mallorca Rocks and supported The Music on their last ever tour (Brixton & Leeds O2). And the band set off on an October eight-date UK tour finishing at Koko (London) for a Halloween special.
