Minnesota’s favorite indie four-piece, Hippo Campus, just released their latest EP warm glow, almost seven months after their first full-length album.
With titles mirroring the all-lowercase EP name, “warm glow,” “traveler,” and “baseball,” seem like a continuation from Landmark, which hit the public in February.
Catchy guitar riffs and message-filled lyrics remain part of Hippo Campus’ original appeal. That said, even though the EP isn’t radically different from their previous album, Hippo Campus has managed to produce over 20 songs in the last two years without being redundant and tired. There’s familiarity, but it isn’t overdone.
The release of warm glow came amidst tour dates and ticket prices for their 2018 winter tour.
