Hank and Cupcakes are, as the name implies, two people, Cupcakes, a charming girl and Hank, a handsome guy from Israel-by-way-of-Australia. When they get onstage, and she starts commanding her drumsticks and shimmying her shoulders, presiding over her drum kit like a Greek temple goddess, they become so much more. Their records pluck up handfuls of good-time soul and darkened ’80s pop, stringing them all together with Cupcakes’ ribbonlike vocals and Hank’s masterful manning of bass-gone-electro, creating so much sound you wonder just how they pull it off. Maybe it’s the facepaint?
