Miami garage-rock trio, Jacuzzi Boys, were formed back in 2007 and later picked up by Hardly Art in 2011. Ever since their first release (but second full length) with Hardly Art, Glazin’, they have been relentlessly storming the indie-rock scene being featured in Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Noisey, MTV Hive and many more.
In a place where latin, rap and hip hop music prevail, Jacuzzi Boys rise against the grain of their hometown to bring us some amazing garage-pop-rock. Their sound blends the typical chord progressions of power pop with their snarly punk attitude while never deviating from what’s in their soul, good ol’ rock n’ roll. Iggy Pop, in an interview with Urban Outfitters, has even put his stamp of approval on this band claiming they’re currently the best thing coming out of Miami.
They’re live shows are full of crackling energy and as their own drummer put it, their shows are “a rock n’ roll piñata – colorful and playful on the surface that needs to be confronted aggressively to spew candy everywhere.”
