Hank & Cupcakes

Hank & Cupcakes

 Tel Aviv, Tel Aviv, ISR

Armed only with a drum kit, a bass guitar and a complete disregard for their own limitations, the two smack and slap their way through herky- jerky dance-pop songs that bristle with sass and sexuality.


Creating lush, groovy walls of sound, vocalist/drummer Cupcakes and bassist Hank have created a collection of danceable jams from their self-titled, debut EP which was recorded with Grammy Award winning producer Mark B. Christensen (N.O.R.E., 50 Cent) last Spring. Recently dubbed a “fresh new artist” on MTV‘s 'The Seven', songs such as the infectiously catchy “Ain’t No Love,” which spawned videos featured by URB Magazine and the Village Voice, and a haunting cover of Joy Division‘s “She’s Lost Control” spark immediate dance parties in the live setting.

Formed in Tel Aviv, Israel, just prior to moving to Cuba for six months of musical exploration, the duo ended up in Williamsburg, Brooklyn nearly two years ago.

New York City has been good to the band, where the duo have played over 150 shows, including gigs during the annual CMJ 2010 Music Marathon Festival, with accolades from local press such as Time Out New York, New York Post, The Deli Magazine, This Week In New York, Village Voice, Dirty F*cking Hipster, OfficiallyAYuppie, and more.

Hank and Cupcakes don’t have a full-length album yet, but that will change soon. They are relocating to Berlin to record their debut album with producer Ludwig Boss in August 2011.
