Get To Know: Hippo Campus

Formed in the summer of 2013, Hippo Campus is a four-piece indie rock group from St. Paul, Minnesota. Members Jake Luppen (lead vocals/guitar), Nathan Stocker (guitar), Zach Sutton (bass) and Whistler Allen (drums) all attended high school together and started the band post-graduation.

Hippo Campus’s debut EP, Bashful Creatures, was released this past November, and it is by far one of my favorites. The EP combines light and airy instrumentals with powerful vocals creating a unique sound that is hard to come by, especially from such young musicians.

Having been featured on SIRIUS XM’s Alt-18, the fourth track off the EP, Suicide Saturday is shaping up to be a late summer hit on a ton of alternative stations, however every song is definitely worth a listen.

You can check out their most recent music video for the single Suicide Saturday below and give a listen to the rest of the EP over on Spotify, Soundcloud, or iTunes.

<p>I’m an avid music listener and concert connoisseur. I love painting, coffee and music of all kinds (except country sorry :/). My favorite bands are Vampire Weekend, Glass Animals, Alt-J, and Hippo Campus (but that list changes quite often because I’m constantly discovering new bands to love).</p> <p>If you’re looking for me you can probably find me in a coffee shop or at a concert. I’ve been known to skip school just to wait in line for a concert all day. I love being front row and I do a lot to make sure I get there.</p> <p>I’m also an avid festivalgoer and I’ve flown cross-country for them. I went to Coachella 2014 and it was by far the best weekend of my life. I love writing tips and how to guides to help people get the most out of their festival experience, so if you’re looking for some concert/festival advice come say hi!</p> <p>I’ve had such great concert experiences, and I want to help others with the same. Whether it’s by introducing people to new bands or giving tips on how to get the most out of a concert, I’m here to help! </p> <p>Twitter: @stfueva<br /> Instagram: @not.eva</p>
