A fusion of the words "tactile" and "dactylics", Tactylics is a New York-based, funk-rock band dedicated to making music people can feel--combining rich lyrics, melodic hooks, and hard-hitting grooves to produce a powerful rock sound steeped in funk. With New Jersey roots, the group is quickly garnering attention on the local NYC scene, having performed at the coveted "From the Penthouse: Artist Loft Series" at Tainted Blue Studios in October of 2008. Tactylics was also named winner of the International Music Festival for the New York market in March of 2009. The band recently finished production of its debut EP, "The Guilty Pleasures Prototype", which was independently released in August of 2009 (available at soundslikefeel.com).
