in middle school, a majority of TAUK's members have been playing together for over a decade. The group
with their sound throughout the years both individually while studying at top music universities and conservatories,
together as a band - always working to find their ideal sound. It wasn't until 2012 with the addition of drummer,Isaac
Teel, and the realization the band could build a fan base around a completely instrumental act, that the pieces fell
place for Homunculus. Jalbertexplains, "This band has been through a lot, but we hit a point last year where it just
like things were coming together the way they were supposed to. We really wanted this new album to be a statement
to what TAUK is all about."
With the new album's psychedelic title, Homunculus, TAUK aims to leave the interpretation of both the title and the
music up to the listener. "Being an instrumental band leaves a lot of our music up to being interpreted in different
ways," explains Jalbert.
