"High School Lover" is about a girl who would write [Cayucas frontman] Zach [Yudin] love letters," says Cameron Dutra, director of the Californian indie-rock outfit's brand new clip, for a highlight from their Richard Swift-produced debut, Bigfoot. "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."

In fact, Dutra deployed a glitchy stop-motion effect he developed himself, sending Yudin (whose twin brother Ben also plays bass) and his paramour into altered, near levitative states. Cayucas are touring the West Coast this month and next; check out tour dates and an official Bigfoot track list below.
