2018 album also available in CD.
Hippo Campus are four Minnesotan boys making music that is infectious, joyful, and thematically soaked with the sense of cynicism accompanying the youthful search of self-meaning.
‘Bambi’ is the bands sophomore album and is shaped by the impact of toxic masculinity, the #Metoo movement and mental health issues, ‘Bambi’ sees Hippo Campus open up more than ever before. As audibly quirky and sprightly as ever, the band express their vulnerabilities through their most honest lyrics and moving melodies to date. On ‘Bambi’, Hippo Campus do a superb job of balancing their vivacious sound with much more sensitive and openly fragile lyrical content.
Throughout ‘Bambi’, Hippo Campus match their relentless self-examination with a joyfully adventurous sonic approach, ultimately transforming the emotional experience of the problems they're exploring. One of the band’s greatest hopes for ‘Bambi’ is that the album might help others in dealing with their own pain. “I’ve always considered the responsibility of art to be representing your specific experience,” says Sutton. “We’re saying, ‘This is what I’m doing now, this what I’m living like.’ It’s about sharing what you’re going through, so maybe someone else will feel less lonely.”
