Miami indie rockers Jacuzzi Boys release new single "Double Vision"

As much as we wanted Jacuzzi Boys' new single "Double Vision" to be a psych-rock cover of Foreigner's classic hit, we are nevertheless satisfied by the Miami trio's stutter-heavy single.

The garage-rock band's latest song is off their eponymous new album "Jacuzzi Boys," due out in September, but the pre-summer jam couldn't be better-timed for South Florida. The Boys' "Double Vision" is awash in sun-soaked layers of synth and plucky guitar chords from bassist Danny Gonzalez.

Nasally frontman Gabriel Alcala cruises through the New Wave-reminscent track, perhaps channeling the Cars' Ric Ocasek as he drones lyrics about the slow decay of love. "T-t-t-t-t-, You got to take it apart," Alcala stutter-sings, before the song morphs into a ponderous, fuzz-rock instrumental.

More satisfying than the track itself, perhaps, was the circumstance that spawned the song's creation. As Alcala recalls to Rolling Stone: "It was the right night to record 'Double Vision.' We left the liquor store with all the ingredients to make tequila sunrises."

The indie-rockers, who are releasing a seven-inch record in June, are kicking off their summer tour Friday night at the new backstage venue at the Fillmore Miami Beach, 1700 Washington Ave., Miami Beach. Doors open at 9 p.m. with local openers Nerve City, Cop City Chill Pillars and DJ Alex Caso. Admission is $5. Info: 305-673-7300 or
