In early 2014, they signed to Tiny Engines and that March released a 7" titled Hot Dad Calendar.[5][6][7]

On September 9, 2014, Cayetana released their debut full-length album titled Nervous Like Me via Tiny Engines.[8][9][10][11] Two years later, Cayetana released an EP on Asian Man Records titled Tired Eyes.[12] Also in 2016, Cayetana released a split on Poison City Records with Camp Cope.[13]
