It is indeed a lovely, bucolic hiking spot in Oregon, but we speak to you today of another kind of lovely, bucolic Oregonia: Indie-pop outfit Ramona Falls, the muchbuzzed Portland band sprung from one third of Menomena.

If you like the sort of lush, yearning rock their label Barsuk is known for — namely, Nada Surf, the Long Winters, and, of course, longtime flagshippers Death Cab for Cutie — Ramona is very likely right up your starry-eyed alley.

Listen to the exclusive stream of “Meletric” below, and tell us if you’re feeling suitably melectrified — and intrigued enough to pick up Ramona’s debut, Intuit, when it comes out August 18, and perhaps catch them on their upcoming U.S. tour:
