“Exciting dancehall-punk-disco collisions!”
- LA Weekly

“a mash-up of all the world's most danceable music, from electro to Afro-beat, to reggaeton and post-punk. It's a hell of an experience to see them live.”
- Boston's Weekly Dig

“It’s an electro dance martini. Take a few shots of synth, pour on reggae and funk drums, shake, shake, shake and serve over rockin’ guitar lines.”
- Kerry Purcell, Boston Herald

Lovewhip is a dance band that jams, and people love it. Playing a party-starting mix of psychedelic rock, dance-pop, and world music, the energy and presence of Lovewhip’s live shows is infectious, sexy, fun and over-the-top. The Jamaica Plain, MA based group whip up infectious original songs for those who love shaking their booty on the dancefloor. “Lovewhip may be our answer to Prince, except it's a funky, electro-jam with a female guitar-slinging mastermind!” says Cheap Thrills Boston. Combining the best of world and reggae dance rhythms with 80's synth, the band's sound is topped off by singer/guitarist Empress Erin's soaring psychedelic rock guitar, creating an “irresistible party soundtrack” that fans love! Think Talking Heads, Gwen Stefani and LCD Soundsystem all rolled into one.

Lovewhip has released four critically acclaimed studio albums (Whip It Baby!, Bouncehall, Virtual Booty Machine, and Love Electric) and one live album (Live Booty Pop). Their latest album, Love Electric, is a futuristic dance party complete with unicorns, icebots, intrigue, and rock'n'roll! Each song on the album is chock full of catchy hooks, mixing dancehall reggae with disco, pop and rock. The album was produced by Jake Zavracky (producer/composer, of the bands Cyanide Valentine and Quick Fix), and recorded in Boston and Brooklyn. “It all comes together like a Kraftwerk cover band hanging out with Fischerspooner on a DEVO appreciation night at the hottest dance club in town.”
