LouFest Artist Spotlight: Hippo Campus
The boys of Hippo Campus got to live out every high schooler's dream: form a band with your friends, record some music, then immediately explode out of the gates. They released their debut EP, Bashful Creatures, independently, then were immediately signed to a record label and started appearing everywhere. Conan, SXSW, Lolla, Bonnaroo—if it's cool, they've done it.
The high schooler inside of us is so jealous.
In early 2017, Hippo Campus released their first full-length LP, Landmark, which was packed to the gills with what has become the band's signature sound: catchy guitar riffs, killer harmonies, and more catchy guitar riffs. Their sound is a little bit Vampire Weekend, a little bit Saint Motel.
Like so many of the bands at this year's LouFest, Hippo Campus brings it hard when it comes to performing live—plus, they sound just as good live as they do in studio.
