Past and Present

Temples-Pink Floyd

Past and Present is Tavik’s way of paying homage to the musicians that may have been forgotten, but continue to inspire us today. In each installment we take music from earlier generations and compare it to the songs they influence today.

Based in the UK, Temples have been labeled as the newest addition to the modern psychedelic scene. The music tends regurgitate rhythms and chord progressions of early psych albums (Piper at the Gates of Dawn, The Psychedelic Sounds of the 13th Floor Elevators), and lacks the innovation true psych was once saturated with. While they may not be groundbreaking, they did manage to find an accessible middle ground between pop and psych. Listen to “Colours to Life” off of their 2014 album Sun Structures, and “Lucifer Sam” off of Pink Floyd’s 1967 album Piper at the Gates of Dawn.

Past and Present

Syd Barrett- Jacco Gardner

Past and Present is Tavik’s way of paying homage to the musicians that may have been forgotten, but continue to inspire us today. In each installment we take music from earlier generations and compare it to the songs they influence today.

Syd Barrett began as a founding member of Pink Floyd, and due to his progressive use of psychedelic drugs, departed from the group after the first album (The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, 1967). In 1970, he released two solo albums, both providing an intimate look at his increasing insanity. Dutch artist Jacco Gardner may not be suffering from an LSD binge, but produces music of similar style, reminiscent of early Floyd. Listen to Syd Barrett’s “Terrapin” and Jacco Gardner’s “Lullaby”.

TAVIK HOLLOW iPhone 5c CASE LAUNCHES TODAY WITH MAJOR RETAILER


“Since time immemorial, color has been a tool of expression.  An undeniable extension of who you are. And that’s exactly why we brought it to iPhone. It’s why we said no to thousands of seemingly acceptable colors before saying yes to five with uncommon beauty and depth. And why color is designed to permeate everything when you use iPhone 5c. From the way it looks. To the way it works. The way it makes you feel. Because for color to truly be part of the experience, it can’t simply be painted on. It has to be engineered in.”

–Apple

As soon as Apple launched the new iPhone 5c design, TAVIK was immediately conceptualizing cases for it. And because not everyone is keen on covering up that colorful makeup of their new iPhone 5c, TAVIK has created a case for the device that highlights the bright exterior of its new product while maintaining the form-fitting design. Enter the HOLLOW.

TAVIK’s HOLLOW case for the iPhone 5c provides state-of-the-art protection in a stylish two layer design. Innovative frosted cutouts accentuate both the 5c’s bright hue and sleek design while guarding against scratches, dents and the occasional party foul. The case still grants full access to all ports, speakers and camera, with the additional protection of the volume and power buttons being fully enclosed.

Even when viewed from the front, the edge of the case is designed not to cover the rim of the phone, but run perfectly parallel to it. In line with the Apple ethos, the result is a case that feels like a part of the phone, not just something designed around it.  And this belief is even carried through to the recognizable black and white branded TAVIK packaging, with an easy to open, simple magnetic snap closure, making access to the case, minimally straightforward.

The HOLLOW case launches today on Apple, and is also available on TAVIK.com in black, white and pink.

For press inquiries, please contact hannah@tavik.com

Thursday Afternoon – 1-30-2014


Thursday Afternoon is TAVIK’s song choice to help get your weekend started early and “beat” the crowds…

Ducktails began as the lo-fi, experimental solo project of Matt Mondanile, better known as guitarist in Real Estate. Over time, the music has come closer and closer to resembling a full band, and his most recent releases have shown an evolution towards a sort of jazz-infused synth pop. Listen to Jazz off of his latest EP, Wish Hotel.

Past and Present Tuesday January 28


Past and Present is Tavik’s way of paying homage to the musicians that may have been forgotten, but continue to inspire us today. In each installment we take music from earlier generations and compare it to the songs they influence today.

There is a lot of mystery behind Daft Punk, and the music is no exception. They are well known for their use of samples, and do so in a way that can be difficult to notice. Some of their biggest hits have spawned from samples, sometimes only grabbing a mere two seconds of a song. Listen to Daft Punk’s “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” and Edwin Birdsong’s “Cola Bottle Baby”.
