After a short run of shows in Europe this year, Hippo Campus returned in October 2017 to take in more dates in the UK, Ireland, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium and France, the recent debut album landmark is now released!

Have you ever had one of those moments when listening to an album where you think, “This might not be aimed at me — hell, it’s probably aimed a few miles away from me,” but it connects regardless? Bambi is one of those albums. Hippo Campus have been a bit of a mystery.  After selling records at Bonnaroo and having their title be the most coveted on all three days , I couldn’t wrap my head around what type of band they were and how they were able to captivate their audience.

Let’s not beat around the bush here, they make pop music — but they make pop music that’s just the right amount of nostalgic while staying deeply rooted in futurism. Bambi is a genuine risk that, admittedly, may have attributed to why this album flew so far under the radar. Regardless, this record is a bold and genuinely enjoyable move by a young band exploring every possible avenue.
