Hippo Campus’ “Golden” Is A Drizzling, Visual ASMR

Just let it pour

There is something oddly satisfying watching something drizzle all over anything. Hippo Campus gift us with a visual ASMR experience with their latest audio video for “Golden” where we see caramelized golden liquid dripping all over random things like plants and earth…some of you might be wondering why they didn’t put a cake in the video. But the answer is, this is not food porn. This is about fluidity of life and long-term relationships. It will make sense once you listen:

“‘Golden,’ formerly known as ‘Polka Dot Socks,’ is a series of questions within a long-lasting relationship. The desire to scrap everything paired with the desire to keep it all intact. The journey in walking that fine line. The song was written quickly at the beginning of our demoing process, but it took a while to fashion it in a way that felt right. And we realized that there are no answers to the questions asked in the lyrics, but you have to ask them anyway.”

The track is probably the final glimpse of Hippo Campus’ upcoming sophomore record Bambi, which will be out on September 28th. They will kick off their longass tour next month, so go drizzle gold on them:
