Reviews Hank & Cupcakes Self Titled EP

Hank & Cupcakes

Self Titled EP

It’s time to loosen up because Hank & Cupcakes are looking to get you out of your chair and out on the dance floor. This electro-pop duo have released their debut self-titled EP chock-full of catchy beats and tasty rhythms.

The first track, “There Ain’t No Love,” gets you moving your body to Hank’s dulcet bass-riffs as Cupcakes keeps the beat on the drums and makes you swoon with her strong vocals. Next is “Pleasure Town.” This funky number starts off with Cupcakes singing the opening lyric before Hank brings about the hooks and the EP’s best chorus.

The duo slows things down with the third song, “Roses.” This ballad gives off an 80’s vibe with a soothing melody. The final track is a risky cover of Joy Division’s “She’s Lost Control.” It’s impressive to find that they pull it off. Although it has a shaky opening, the two soon find their groove and manage to deliver a solid rendition. Hank replaces the song’s original riff with a rhythmic bass-line while Cupcakes gives her best vocal performance that layers and echoes in the end.

Hank & Cupcakes are only getting started. Their catchy electro-pop fusion is bound to have us dancing in the future.
