Israeli drum and bass duo Hank and Cupcakes prove Brooklyn is their new home with this board walk video in Coney Island to the tune of "Pleasure Town".
Flush with simmering sexuality and irresistible dance pulse, Brooklyn-based Hank & Cupcakes are the coalescence of rock without guitars and pop without synthesizers. Hailing from Tel Aviv, the duo consist of powerhouse vocalist/drummer Cupcakes and bassist/pedal board magician Hank. Named in reference to Charles Hank Bukowski and one of his real-life lovers "Cupcakes," they have been honing their explosive live performances in front of US audiences since they arrived in 2008. Fully realized now, the show is a raucous bash, where the mesmerizing Cupcakes stands to bang her drum kit only breaking the beat to catalyze a dance party with the crowd.
Last August, Hank & Cupcakes recorded their upcoming album with Swedish producer Ludwig Boss at the famous Hansa Studios in Berlin where landmark records from U2, David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Depeche Mode, Nick Cave, R.E.M. & many more were made. The debut album is due out sometime in early 2013 - for now, their three-track Aint No Love EP is available on iTunes.
