Shortly after releasing the visual for latest single ‘Violet’, Hippo Campus are at it again with the music video for ‘South’. Working with director JIMES and the team over at HyperHouse, the collaboration allowed the band to stay true to their vision – with particularly impressive results.

Discussing the video, Hippo Campus offered the following;

The “South” video was an opportunity for us to create a series of images that directly reflected the vibe of the music. Rather than make a direct interpretation of the song’s story, we wanted the video serve as it’s own piece. It’s ultimately a testament that there’s no true self, we are many people, ever-changing with every moment that passes”



It’s another exciting step for a brilliant young band that are quickly becoming darlings in the UK. Previous efforts ‘Suicide Saturday’ and ‘South’ have seen them named Huw Stephens ‘Single Of The Week’ and led to sessions for BBC Radio 1 and XFM, whilst The Guardian, NME, DIY and Q have all marked Hippo Campus out as an act to seriously keep an eye on.

South also marks something of a milestone in a year that has seen Hippo Campus evolve from playing packed shows in their hometown of Minnesota to touring both sides of the pond with the likes of; Modest Mouse, Walk The Moon, Real Estate and My Morning Jacket. Explosive performances at SXSW – the band ended the festival with a live appearance on US talk show Conan – The Great Escape and Reading & Leeds festivals have further set the band out as definite ones to watch for 2016

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.
