CAYUCAS

On their last album, Bigfoot, Cayucas debuted in a way that defied their namesake, the sleepy seaside town of Cayucos, CA. As listeners fell in love with its shimmering west coast vibes, Zach Yudin watched his bedroom recording project transform into a band that toured the world almost overnight, all while his songs raced across the radio. But as Zach and his twin brother and bandmate, Ben, went in to create what would become their new album, what it all came back to was something more personal. While they now call Los Angeles home, they drew from the nostalgia of their childhood growing up in Davis, CA; the nostalgia in their music that is as much about a place they've never been (that maybe no one's been to) as any actual experience. It was a freedom to imagine, to explore ideas. And it was that wandering imagination and a punchy California dream that eventually grew to become Dancing at the Blue Lagoon.

ALBUM ANNOUNCE // Cayucas Announce Sophomore Album ‘Dancing at the Blue Lagoon’ Out 6/23, Hear Track “Moony Eyed Walrus” Now

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.

Listen to track “Moony Eyed Walrus” above or on our SoundCloud / YouTube pages.

Pre-order Dancing at the Blue Lagoon via SCD, Amazon, iTunes, or your local record store.
