Hank and Cupcakes

Hank and Cupcakes, Brooklyn 

"They have consistently been making waves in the Brooklyn/NYC area and their live shows are off the hook." - wrote Music Vagabond and picking Hank and Cupcakes on the the 10 bands to watch in 2010

Other music critics wrote:
“Cupcakes is a rock star, capable of moving crowd. Hank is perhaps the best bassist I've ever seen” 
“Mind shattering, avant-garde” 

Since arriving in Brooklyn from Israel a little more than a year ago, Hank and Cupcakes have captivated New York with an explosive show noted for its simmering sexuality, irresistible dance pulse, and hard to pigeonhole sound. “If I had to define it, I’d call the music experimental minimalist pop,” Hank says. “We’re trying to make pop music without having a pop sound.”
