Minneapolis’ Hippo Campus came onto the scene last fall with their debut EP Bashful Creatures, garnering comparisons to Vampire Weekend with their lack of guitar effects and vocalist Jake Luppen’s Koenig-esque yelping. With gigs opening for My Morning Jacket, Real Estate, and Modest Mouse coming up, Hippo Campus are coming more into their own with the video for “Suicide Saturday,” a hooky pop-rock track off their Bashful Creatures EP. Director Balint Revesz’s video features all four band members flailing around with confetti, paint splatter, and silly string. Watch below.
Bashful Creatures is out now on Grand Jury Music.
