Hippo Campus share single "Passenger"
Hippo Campus

Hippo Campus recently dropped their first piece of music, since last year’s warm glow EP. Their new single “Passenger,” was produced by regular-collaborator BJ Burton (Bon Iver, Sylvan Esso, Francis & The Lights). Hippo Campus kick off their tour on July 7th in Quincy, CA at the High Sierra Music Festival. The band will be stopping at Terminal 5 in New York City, The Riviera in Chicago, Stubbs in Austin, TX and more. The band will be joined by special guests The Districts each night. Other highlights include a show with Sylvan Esso, on july 18th at Red Rocks.

Hippo Campus’ Jake Luppen on “Passenger”:

“Passenger was written in the winter of 2017 after the first four months of touring on landmark. Lyrically the themes deal with the challenges of growing alongside the person you love. For this song in particular I tried to challenge myself to write a more complex chord progression to sing to. I started off with a TR-8 groove and the rest followed pretty naturally.”
