Meet Tauk, a band that delivers a unique blend of funk, jazz, pop and rock with a fresh, experimental spirit. Since forming earlier this decade, the NYC-based group has built an impressive DIY buzz scoring opening gigs for O.A.R, MOE., Robert Randolph & the Family Band and many more.
We were happy to have some locals pop by the loft shortly after our shoot with PK. Tauk has a wonderful musical vision that pushes the envelope for many fans and we’re so excited to bring you this vision through their Beatles cover in the video above.
We’ve had so much fun recording bands the last few weeks so please remember to keep them coming! If you’re interested in participating in our Suite 268 series, just email us at email@example.com
Sonically described as “The Killers meet Vampire Weekend,” PK has been compared to acts such as The Cure, and U2. This high-energy, scrappy indie-pop quintet made the trip from their base in California, to NYC. We were lucky enough to be one of the stops along their trip through the Big Apple.
Back at the loft we’ve begun experimenting with new lighting and areas of the space. We hope you like it!

Fearlessly honest and unwaveringly persistent, The Ugly Club has been operating for nearly two years with such a force that it has become impossible to ignore them (and you would be foolish to do so). We had the pleasure of hosting a video shoot for Suite 268 with them this week.
Their delicate inclusion of jazz, indie-rock, and Prince-eqsue neo-funk sent us into an a daydream. And that cover? It melted our hearts.
Enjoy the latest from our loft and keep updated with the series here.
Drawing influences from Bon Iver, Avett Brothers and David Bazan, George Kamel effectively unites the ethereal and earthly using an impressive array of folk instrumentation, while guiding the listener through haunting seasons of beauty and pain.
As a part of our Suite 268 series, Kamel offered us a solo version of Taylor Swift’s “Safe & Sound” (featuring The Civil Wars). Watch this intimate little scene from our Studio B in the live video above.
Be sure to stay updated with all of Suite 268′s latest video from Indaba Music HQ or the Indaba loft here.
Last week we had the pleasure of recording The Royal Concept at Suite 268. This insanely catchy indie-pop band from Stockholm played us through their newly released EP including hit tracks like “Gimme Twice” and “Goldrushed.”
In addition to their electronic hits, they performed their cover of The Beatles “Dont Let Me Down” and gave us an exclusive interview about becoming a band and creating their debut album.
The Royal Concept EP is available now and you can catch the rest of our session on our Suite 268 youtube channel. Get your dancing shoes on and D-D-Dance!
