The world of indie pop just seems to grow larger and larger, and Minnesota’s Hippo Campus is definitely part of that growth. Ahead of their upcoming new album Bambi, they just gave the world a new single and it’s pretty hard not to adore. With “Golden,” the talented five piece definitely caught the world’s attention with the first single off the sophomore release, and this track should be just as popular.
Slow to open until things pop off, the song definitely hooks into your ears, and doesn’t let go until it’s over. The guitar sneaks it’s way onto the track while the bass and the drums make their own little world that works well with the pop infused stride of the track. It’s catchy, it’s fun, and it makes you look forward for what else will be on the new album.
You can stream Bambi everywhere tomorrow, or preorder you own physical copy of the album from Grand Jury Music or directly from the band before its release on November 23. Hippo Campus starts their tour next week on October 5 at The Pabst Theater in Milwaukee and ends on March 5 at Hotel Cecil in Copenhagen. A complete list of their tour dates can be found here.
