Santa Monica‘s Cayucas released a music video for their single “High School Lover.” Directed by Cameron Dutra, the video shows the beach bum band performing inside a brick building decorated like a bungalow. Band founder Zach Yudin glitches with spurts of colorful animated graphics as if he’s a piñata having a seizure. And of course, an adolescent romance is told. In the press release, Dutra said:
“‘High School Lover’ is about a girl who would write Zach love letters, yet he would never respond despite actually liking her back. I tried to abstract the idea of a high school girl’s notebook with doodles and sketches into stop motion graphics and titles. Overall we wanted to keep the vibe light-hearted, fun, and creative just like the music.”
Cayucas‘ debut album Bigfoot was produced by Richard Swift (The Shins, Damien Jurado, The Mynabirds) and will be released on April 30th via Secretly Canadian Records.
Cayucas will next perform at Origami Vinyl on April 30th for their album release party. And it’s free!
