“Maybe it’s just like a personal delusion, [but] I feel like I relate to, say, Akon, more than I do Death Cab for Cutie,” quips Harlem Shakes lead singer Lexy Benaim. “I think the guitarist in my band would cut me with a knife if he heard me say that.” Though auto-tuned club hits didn't inform the band's effervescent debut LP, Technicolor Health, as much as classic rock and Latin radio, Randy Newman and Santana, Harlem Shakes are hell-bent on achieving that same sort of social quality as they carve out their niche in the vast landscape of pop music.
