After not releasing any music for nearly 2 years, Hippo Campus is back with their new single “Bad Dream Baby.”
The band is made up of Jake Luppen (lead vocals/guitar), Nathan Stocker (lead guitar/vocals), Zach Sutton (bass/keyboard), Whistler Isaiah Allen (drums/vocals), and DeCarlo Jackson (trumpet). They formed in St. Paul, Minnesota in 2013. That same year they put out their first EP, Tarzan Rejects. Since then, they have released 4 full-length albums and multiple EPs and singles.
This is a new sound for Hippo Campus. Previously, their music has been a lot more chill and laid back. This new song is upbeat and makes you want to get up and dance. For this American indie-rock band, this definitely is sitting more so the rock side. The guitar in this song is so catchy right after the chorus. We absolutely loved this song the first time we heard it. Catch it on repeat all summer long.
In addition to their new single, Hippo Campus also announced their new EP Good Dog, Bad Dream which will be released August 6th.
