After a spending the majority of the last two years writing and recording, Cayucas is applying the finishing touches on their best work yet, a third LP, produced by Dennis Herring (Elvis Costello, Modest Mouse, Camper Van Beethoven) coming soon. First single, Jessica WJ, out August 31.
Cayucas is the name of the California-born and raised, shimmery pop craft of Zach Yudin and his twin brother Ben. On their debut album, Bigfoot, Cayucas emerged 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 watched his bedroom recording project transform into a band that toured the world almost overnight, all while his songs raced across the radio. 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.
