Following on from their critically acclaimed debut album Landmark, Minnesota quartet Hippo Campus have shared a special acoustic video of single Western Kids. The video was filmed in London after their sold out Dingwalls show earlier this year. Watch below.
One of the first tracks written for their debut, Western Kids finds the band taking a critical yet ironic look at their generation – questioning whether we ourselves embody the problems so often discussed, and more often complained about whilst feeling frustrated by a criticism of the self, inherent in youth. It continues the line of self-discovery throughout Landmark, a band coming of age with a better understanding of the world they will leave behind.

Hippo Campus made their entrance into the UK music scene when they joined Little Comets on tour last year and soon began selling out their own headline shows. They are currently touring the US tour before returning to the UK and Europe later this year – including their biggest to date at London’s Koko. Dates can be found below.
