What a wonderful day! Secretly Canadian welcomes our newest signee, Cayucas, to the family. Led by Zach Yudin, Cayucas is California through-and-through. Each song is a perfectly crafted pop gem, complete with catchy, addicting melodies, syncopated rhythms and a breezy chorus of vocals. They release their “Cayucos” b/w “Swimsuit” 7″ next Tuesday, October 16. Pre-order your copy HERE. We look forward to a proper, Richard Swift produced full-length come 2013!

Today we get our first musical taste from Cayucas. Premiering this morning at MTVu, it’s the video for their new single “Cayucos.” Calling the video “a throwback to the timelessness of the beach and the people you share such a fond place with,” director Nolan Wilson Goff chose Corona Del Mar Beach and Whittier, CA as the backdrop to the video. Get your sunglasses, towel and swimsuit ready; we’re going to the beach >>> enjoy the video above!

“Take one gorgeous blonde with a flare for excellent summer dresses, throw in four awkwardly cute indie rockers, mix with one scenic beach and you get the catchy-as-hell, super fun to watch new video by Cayucas.” – MTVu

Here’s a treat for your Wednesday! Zach shares a new Spotify playlist with songs he’s lived with for the last year or so. Listen below!

Stay in the know with Cayucas! Follow the band on Facebook and Twitter!

“All i can really say about these songs is that I’ve listened to them a lot over the past year or so… & they’ve inspired me very much. It’s a mixture of new indie stuff, as well as oldies that I had to dig up from my CD collection & rediscover. For some reason or another, I love these songs…” – Zach
