Local indie pop standouts Hippo Campus are back! After the release of their debut album Landmark last year, the buzzworthy band is returning with Bambi on September 28th, and they shared the album’s title track today.

Attentive HippoHeads will immidiately note that the song is something of a musical departure for the band, prominently feature a twitchy synth sample and a laid-back California R&B vibe that calls to mind crooners like Chet Faker. While we don’t know if the rest of the album will move in this direction quite yet, one could credit producer BJ Burton (Bon Iver) with the migration towards more electronic sounds.
