TAUK shared the video for their single, “Moon Dub.” The New York-based four-piece released audio for the instrumental earlier this month along with Fall 2021 tour dates .

TAUK’s Charlie Dolan, Matt Jalbert, Alric Carter and Issac Teel took to a New York City studio to film the video for “Moon Dub” — which fittingly features the band in a lunar setting — with director Dani Barbieri.

“The floating, spacey nature of the song coupled with Dani’s excellent creative input and execution brought us to Volvox Labs where we were able to make it feel like we are playing on the moon and do the shoot on their high-tech screens and come away with an amazing looking video,” guitarist Matt Jalbert said of the video shoot in a press release. “It was then that we actually landed on the song title. It was damn hot in those space suits, but worth it in the end.”

Barbieri, who is also credited with production, costume and set design, further detailed the shoot. “As a director, it’s rare to visualize a music video so vividly upon being pitched an idea,” she said. But the concept for “Moon Dub” video came to her in a stream of consciousness. Read about her experience below:

I could see the whole video in my head almost instantaneously. This was the most ambitious production I’ve ever taken on—between integrating cutting edge LED screen technology, Super 8mm film and stop motion animation, there were A LOT of moving parts. I built a practical moon surface and moon rocks with my bare hands! Needless to say, this video was a labor of love and I’m so grateful and proud of my team for the artistry they poured into every detail. The men in TAUK brought 100% energy to every single take. They are true heroes and it was a gift and a dream to take them to the moon!
