Still basking in the afterglow of a successful CMJ performance and kicking off their US tour, Hank & Cupcakes have released their Ain’t No Love EP. The band has also released an awesomely retro video for the giddy pop track “Sweet Potion.” Find out more about the inspiration behind the clip after the jump.
Directed by The New Yorker‘s chief media editor/documentary filmmaker Myles Kane, the video is teeming with old school found footage, creating a retrolicious visual delight. “We really like this song,” said the duo. “It’s one of the first songs we wrote for Hank & Cupcakes and it’s been through a lot with us! We had a blast and a good laugh shooting and editing this video, Myles found a lot of pretty amazing self help footage from the 80′s & 90′s, and you won’t believe the context behind these little fragmented moments that are in the music video!”
