Brother and sister HANK and CHARLOTTE FONTAINE, who describe their music as “new-wop,” create music that’s irrefutably catchy, filled with flashy guitar licks and sprightly rhythms. Their songs are positively addictive, courtesy of Charlotte’s honky-tonk, insouciant yet feminine vocals. This duo sounds unlike anything else you’ve ever heard. With influences as diverse as Buddy Holly, Sam Cooke, The Cars, The Strokes and the Pixies, and song titles like “Paul Newman,” “Dustin Hoffman” and “Dusty Springfield,” The Fontaine’s eclectic sound has a vibe that only these two could’ve come up with.
