PREMIERE: Listen to a Cheerleader remix of “Suicide Saturday” by Hippo Campus
Members of the Minnesota band Hippo Campus and Philly’s Cheerleader met on Cheerleader’s first tour across the country when Nathan from Hippo Campus came out to their show in Minneapolis in 2014. Mutual fans, Cheerleader have done a remix of “Suicide Saturday” that we’re premiering.
About the song, Carl Bahner of Cheerleader told us:
“The first time I heard their song I was captivated by the vocals. Its a killer rock tune, and there is so much soul in Jake’s voice. My instincts told me to try a halftime r&b vibe, but I still managed to sneak in a few studio tricks, like playing the drums through a guitar amp.”
Cheerleader are playing at World Cafe Live at the Queen in Wilmington, Delaware on Wednesday, November 18th. Hippo Campus return to town on Thursday, November 12th at The Barbary.
Below, listen to Cheerleader’s remix of “Suicide Saturday” by Hippo Campus. They give the original version (below) of it a blissed out, yacht rock, vibey twist. It’s stellar.
