Hank & Cupcakes: Dirty and loud
The duo revels in pop-laced debauchery
With a name that serves as direct reference to the notorious Charles Bukowski and one of his lovers, Hank & Cupcakes is raunchy and unapologetic. The duo hails from Tel Aviv and Melbourne, and their combination of distorted bass and thumping drums makes for a headstrong strain of infectious rock-pop. The music sounds like sonic graffiti, with lead singer Sagit “Cupcakes” Shir’s powerful voice wailing over top of a playfully aggressive musical backdrop. Hank & Cupcakes shine through live performance, inviting fans to join the sexy, sweaty, and keenly voyeuristic dance party.
