Its been a couple of years since weve heard new offerings from Cayucas and named them one of the best new bands of 2013 off the strength of their debut, Bigfoot. The indie pop duo of twin brothers Zach and Ben Yudin is back with Moony Eyed Walrus off their sophomore album, Dancing At The Blue Lagoon. The surf is gnarly on this song, with groovy guitar stabs, big drums, and sweeps crashing together to propel the track forward. –Stereogum
Today we are proud to announce Dancing at the Blue Lagoon, the sophomore album from Zach and Ben Yudin, the twin brothers compromising Los Angeles-based Cayucas. In line with their 2013 debut, Bigfoot, the new album has similar sun-drenched, jangly, California vibes, yet tells a more personal story as the band draws from the nostalgia of growing up in their hometown of Davis, California. Recorded with Ryan Hadlock (The Lumineers, Foo Fighters, Ra Ra Riot) at Bear Creek in Washington State, Dancing at the Blue Lagoon will drop June 23 via Secretly Canadian and is available now for pre-order with an instant grat download of debut single “Moony Eyed Walrus”. Look for the band on their five-week North American tour this July. Album art, track listing and tour dates after the jump.
Cayucas shared their new summery tinged video for “Will the Thrill” starring Bigfoot none other than Michelle Branch yesterday via Esquire.com. Grab some flowers on your walk to the date and watch the new video directed by Scott Z. Stinnett above or here on Youtube / Vevo.
