HECUBA is Isabelle Albuquerque and Jon Beasley. They are from Los Angeles.
One never knows what to expect from Hecuba. Dancers, Japanese Koto harp, computers, beat machines, trombones and soul singers have all been a part. L. A. Record says they have "real and weird and unexpected soul.", while Paper Thin Walls writes, "Hecuba's dubbed-out drone-moan is the L.A. version of New York bands like Excepter or Gang Gang Dance: sexier, cleaner, not as gnarled, more open spaces, more vocals, less concerned about their record collection, would rather dance to hip-hop than talk about it… not afraid." L. A. Weekly says, "I was shocked. And in this day and age it is damn hard to be shocked. They are performers in a true sense."
