With a career that has so far amassed almost ¾ of a billion streams and hundreds of thousands of concert ticket sales, Hippo Campus have firmly set their status as one of America’s biggest indie outfits.

‘Ride or Die’ is an anthemic bop that loosely charts ride-or-die relationships across different capacities – communities, romantic partners, collaborators, and friends.

“It’s one of my favourite songs on the record – you can really hear everyone in the band doing their thing.” – Jake Luppen, Hippo Campus

Taken from the upcoming third studio album ‘LP3‘ which arrives 4th February 2022 via Grand Jury Music/Fat Possum.

Hippo Campus

New Music: Lupin

A sound that is totally encapsulating and refreshing; bold but full of character. The beat demands that you dance, while the lyrics tell a story. The production has elements of Jamie Lidell, Prince, and old-school French disco. It’s just a delight to the ears.

“I had been clinging to the past in my relationship at the time, grappling with the realisation that our young expectations of what our future should look like might not actually work out. Or rather shouldn’t work out. This song focuses on coming to terms with that.”

Taken from the debut self-titled album which is out on the 9th October via Grand Jury/ Transgressive.
