Hippo Campus ~ Souls

Hippo Campus debut EP artwork!

Who is HIPPO CAMPUS?  A promising indie rock pop band from Woodbury, Minnesota!  As they put it, they are: Beans, Espo, Stitches & Turntan!

My first impression of “Souls” :  A crisp and clean sounding song with sporadic hints of a Vampire Weekend-y type of vibe!

My take : “Souls” is my favorite track from ‘Beautiful Creatures’, the solid debut EP by Minnesota 4-piece HIPPO CAMPUS released last November.  It’s a song that exudes youthful exuberance confidently capturing a feeling of never wanting to grow up through meticulous guitar plucks, eager hand claps, fervent drum taps and purposeful vocals.  As in the line we sung our songs of youth and promised that we’d never lose it , a line in the sand seems to be drawn.  In the hopes that a person can change time and not the other way around!

Born in sunny San Diego and raised in central Illinois. I graduated from the University of Illinois @Urbana-Champaign and spent the better part of 10 years in sunny Phoenix Arizona after graduation. I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
