A second song from Hippo Campus’ debut album ‘landmark’

As a second piece of the debut Hippo Campus album landmark, which will be out 24 February, monsoon is the most personal and heartfelt song from the band. A contrast to the first single boyish, the band shared the following about the song's lyrics...

"'monsoon' deals with the death of a family member and the surprising lack of devastating grief. There was joy in the life that had been lived, instead of regret for what could’ve been. The monsoon itself became a metaphor for not experiencing that familiar and widely expressed 'it should've been me' feeling, and trying to tackle that conflicting guilt. The guilt of not feeling guilty. Re-creating that world to exist in this song was a therapeutic and rewarding process."

The song can be heard via our New Releases playlists below and on YouTube.
