“Is that a new Beck song?” I thought to myself the first time I heard the Cayucas. And while lead singer Zach Yudin might sound mildly like Beck at first listen, the Cayucas have a different modus operandi then Beck.
The Santa Monica three piece Cayucas (Pronounced “ky-yook-us”) captures sunshine and wraps it up in an indie rock box. They don’t take themselves as seriously as most indie rockers. They create a very tightly produced “loose” sound that just oozes leisure. They’re the type of guys who find the simple things in life to be epic.
Check out their latest single “Hight School Lover” below, and pick up their debut album Bigfoot off of Secretly Canadian now.
