Indie rock sensations Hippo Campus have returned with their airy and atmospheric tune “Passenger.” Documenting the stages of a long-term relationship, “Passenger” showcases how the band is developing their sound.
The track slowly builds and starts to accelerate the deeper you go — much like ups and downs of the relationship its describing.
Singer Jake Luppen said in a press release about “Passenger”: “Lyrically the themes deal with the challenges of growing alongside the person you love.” You can feel every emotion in Luppen’s vocals as the track also pulses with soft electronic sounds.
The overarching theme of “Passenger” seems to be growth, which is the perfect re-introduction to Hippo Campus, who seem to be moving forward and not letting anything get in the way.
