“Hank & Cupcakes offer a lot more substance than their fluffy namesake implies,” says MTV Hive. That’s true, but the duo of Sagit Shir and Ariel Scherbacovsky puts out an energy that is completely infectious and their take on indie-pop is as danceable as it is thoughtful. Which is to say you could sip an adult beverage and pontificate about the social relevance of gritty-bouncy “Ain’t No Love,” to you could just exorcise your demons on the dance floor to darkly rhythmic “Cocaina.”
“This Brooklyn-based duo by way of Tel Aviv Israel and Melbourne Australia are the coalescence of rock without guitars and pop without synthesizers,” says the band’s bio. Hank & Cupcakes plays New Mountain‘s Sol Bar on Saturday, June 6, as part of their tour in support of new release Ca$h 4 Gold. Doors at 9 p.m., free show.
