Grand Jury

Released: 04.02.22






Hippo Campus have followed up 2018’s Bambi with another fine slice of indie pop. The hooks in the tracks bring back many happy memories of when I discovered Jellyfish back in the day. This is the sort of release in which you pick up something new on each listen. Each track sounds distinct from the rest so it isn’t an album where the listening experience gels into an amorphous block.

Ride Or Die is a good example of how, even within a single track, a song can go through interesting phases and how that use of structure keeps the listener interested. There is enough variety on here to keep the listener returning.
