“There’s only 3 of them, but it sounds humongous”

BBC Radio 3 – Jazz Now

Hippo thrives in the hinterland between jazz and electronica. Bursting with buoyant melodies and the adrenal energy of a band stretching their shows to the edge of possibility, the trio continues to make a colossal sound far beyond what their three-piece stature should permit.

Saxophones, synthesisers and drums go in, Hippo comes out.

“Brilliant new band from Bristol” – Jamie Cullum, BBC Radio 2
