Hank & Cupcakes Naked Reviews

Howard Rosen Promotion (www.howiewood.com) artist Hank & Cupcakes released their EP, Naked, on June 1.

Here are a few reviews.

Swerve Magazine

“Yes, they are a duo. But get thoughts of Jack and Meg or the Black Keys out of your head (btw what was the deal with the Black Keys and Johnny Depp?)”

“From “Born Again” to “Pleasure Town,” the album rarely slows down. It is pure kinetic energy, much like a live show from the two. “

“I have no idea what “Liquid Mercury” is, other than it might be quite painful. But the song is one of the catchier on the debut. “


“If you’re not sold the minute Cupcakes opens up “Born Again”, then you might need to see a doctor. The forty minutes that follow are awe inspiring and prove why Hank And Cupcakes deserve all the accolades they’ve been receiving. No two songs sound alike yet the continuity on NAKED is completely organic.”

“Is this the best debut of 2012? Quite possibly. At the very least, it’s the definitive album of the summer. NAKED has all the makings of a perfect album thanks to the solid songwriting and memorable hooks within.”

Catch Hank & Cupcakes on tour this summer.
