This Santa Monica, CA-based band released their fun debut album just in time for summer. They feel like the band that’s playing in the background at a beach party in an old ’60s movie, or maybe the soundtrack to Don & Roger’s recent California visit on Mad Men.
There’s some heavy influence from Vampire Weekend on Bigfoot, the debut full-length album from Cayucas (formerly Oregon Bike Trails), but they hold their own with airy percussion, dreamy echoed vocals, and plenty of lines that will have you singing “oh-ay-oh” all day.
Sounds Like: Vampire Weekend, Weezer, Cults
Gotta Listen To: East Coast Girl, Highschool Lover, Cayucos
