Cayucas – “Moony Eyed Walrus” (Stereogum Premiere)

It’s been a couple of years since we’ve heard new offerings from Cayucas and named them one of the best new bands of 2013 off the strength of their debut, Bigfoot. The indie pop duo of twin brothers Zach and Ben Yudin is back with “Moony Eyed Walrus” off their sophomore album, Dancing At The Blue Lagoon. The surf is gnarly on this song, with groovy guitar stabs, big drums, and sweeps crashing together to propel the track forward. A couple of head-bobbing break downs are definitely worth mention too. The time away has done them well. Listen below.

01 “Big Winter Jacket”
