Watch List: Fill Your Feel Good Summer Playlist With Hippo Campus
Feel good, bright, and luscious are all words to perfectly describe the music of Hippo Campus. The indie rock band from St. Paul, Minnesota is just three years old consisting of band members Jake Luppen (vocals/guitar), Nathan Stocker (guitar/vocals), Zach Sutton (bass), and Whistler Allen (drums/vocals).
With two EPs -- Bashful Creatures (2014) and South (2015) -- we can only hope the steady stream of new music will continue before this year’s end. In addition to focusing on their own music, the band has also played supporting shows for other bands like Modest Mouse and Walk The Moon.
Their freeing summertime sound has also landed them performances at SXSW, Lollapalooza, and Conan. The music of Hippo Campus brings you on a perfect summer day road trip with friends to soak up the sun. With a mixture of old school vibes in terms of instrumentation and contemporary vocals, we can't stop listening. After meeting at the Saint Paul Conservatory for Performing Artists in high school, the band perfectly emanates a young vibrancy in each song, making for the perfect casual aesthetic.
