Why See Hippo Campus?
Millenial Heroes Hippo Campus Tour Bambi
Indie rock ain't dead and bands like Hippo Campus are proving its alive, kicking and evolving to new heights! Formed in 2013 when frontman Jake Luppen, guitarist Nathan Stocker, bassist Zach Sutton and drummer Whistler Isaiah Allen met at the Saint Paul Performing Arts Conservatory in their native Minnesota, the quartet quickly became a fixture in their local indie scene before graduating to the mainstream with the release of their debut album Landmark in 2017. Keeping up the momentum they released their sophomore effort Bambi in September 2018 and continue to tour the record worldwide well into 2019.
Mixing strains of garage rock, post punk, African-inflected rhythms and synth pop, Hippo Campus' melody driven music is often playful and quirky, but mixes in gut-punchingly honest lyrics and emotional depth for good measure. A rock band facing what it means to be masculine in the wake of the Me Too movement, the boundary breaking outfit pull the patriarchy apart and tackle toxic masculinity with insightful story-telling and undeniably catchy hooks, marking them a millenial band apart.
