[MP3] Cayucas – “Cayucos”


can you hear me coming?

♫ Cayucas – Cayucos

  • Who: Zach, Ben, Christian, Banah, Casey
  • What: Indie-Surf, like Generationals, The Drums, Yes, Nice
  • Where: Santa Monica, CA + Facebook
  • When: The “Cayucos” single is out now backed with the also awesome “Swimsuit”
  • Why: I’m gonna let the band’s own bio speak for itself here:

Cayucas: Pronounced “ky-yook-us”, is the monikered homage to a sleepy little seaside town in San Luis Obispo County, California. That town, Cayucos, has hardly changed in the last 50 years, a far cry from the gentrified tourist traps parading showily down the nearby coastline. In the early 1960s, the surfing craze hit. There was one bar around which local kids congregated back then, the site of helpless crushes and fights and games of pool, a place whose jukebox soundtracked innumerable teenage years as breezy summers rolled into mild winters and back around again. The bar has since disappeared, but as Zach Yudin, the man behind the name, will tell you, the place still holds on tight to its propensity for dreamy, lazy, bonfire-lit nights worth getting moony-eyed about.

Plus, get into the Wes Andeson-esque video that captures all the beauty.

    Nice. It has a nice summerish vibe to it :)
    Just for the record: “Cayucos” is Spanish for “canoes” (dugout canoes to be more precise) and it is pronounced Cah-yoo-coh-s.

    Not sure if you knew, only because it wasn’t mentioned, but he used to be called Oregon Bike Trails and has a few more songs. “High School Lover” and “Summer Thing” are GREAT tracks.
