Track Of The Day :: Hippo Campus - Passenger
Words: Sam Geary
St. Paul, Minnesota indie foursome Hippo Campus have dropped their first new material since last autumn’s ‘warm glow’ EP and earlier 'Landmark' full-length.
Titled ‘Passenger’, the stand-alone track is out now via Transgressive Records.
“Passenger was written in the winter of 2017 after the first four months of touring on landmark,” says singer/guitarist Jake Luppen. “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.”
Hippo Campus return to the UK in August.
