The year, 2007. The Boys, Jacuzzi. Hatched inside a vulture's nest, Jacuzzi Boys emerged from deep within the Florida wilds, three radioactive chicks cawing for their piece of electric rock pie.
With No Seasons (Florida's Dying) they freaked their way through the swamps, a psycho stomp of a record, all hallucinations and hand claps. Glazin’ (Hardly Art) found a more polished sound. They installed AC units inside their mobile homes, found a way to turn neon into ice cubes. Now, with their third full-length, the self-titled Jacuzzi Boys, they're going grand, building limestone monuments to those that boogied before them, while writing hypnotic ear worms by the light of a cigarette. Gone is the swamp-thing snarl. In it’s place, the indestructible cool of the casino slot-jockey with nothing to lose.
Recorded at Key Club Recording Co. in Benton Harbor, Michigan—same as 2010’s Glazin’—the new record takes full advantage of expert engineers Bill Skibbe and Jessica Ruffins' sonic sandlot, with Kramer in charge of mastering. The end result? A smashing set of tunes as dazzling as a sparkler.
It’s like that movie you once saw. The one with the boy and the girl and the plastic lounger on the beach. “Be My Prism” was the invitation. “Black Gloves” and “Double Vision” the promise. “Dust” was the rising tide. “Rubble,” the dirty uncle. “Hotline” was the lightning storm, and “Ultraglide” was the ending, the part where he drove her home with the windows down.
You remember you liked it.
It stayed with you while you swam alone in your pool that night.
The Duskwhales are a three-piece indie rock band formed in Manassas, Virginia in 2010. With influences ranging from The Beatles and The Doors to Vampire Weekend and Of Montreal, the young trio melds a retro 60's feel with a modern twist of intricate rhythms and upbeat melodies that permeates onstage and in recordings.
They have shared the stage with national acts Diane Coffee, Car Seat Headrest, Jesse McCartney, and The Ready Set, as well as performed to packed audiences across the Mid-Atlantic region. In 2014, the band released a self-titled LP to praise from music blogs and listeners alike. Their follow-up album is set to release in fall of 2016 after a month-long tour spanning the east coast. With a unique sound and captivating stage presence, The Duskwhales are prepared to make a splash in the independent music scene.
