The Minnesotan quartet Hippo Campus combines clever wordplay with joyful, Afro-pop-inspired melodies and rhythms. After releasing a well-received, debut single “Little Grace” last year, the band swiftly released a much anticipated EP titled Bashful Creatures. The EP has drawn comparisons to great acts like Vampire Weekend and Paul Simon, and the band was added to the NME "Buzz Band to Watch" list.

Hippo Campus recently stopped by Studio A to play some songs and talk about their debut EP, and we’ll hear that performance and conversation during this episode of FUV Live.
