2012 is shaping up to be a big year for Oberhofer. The debut record by the Tacoma native, titled Time Capsules II, will be released on March 27th by Glassnote. This album is a bold and exciting statement for Brad Oberhofer, recorded in Brooklyn last fall with legendary producer Steve Lillywhite (U2, The Rolling Stones, Morrissey among others).
Emotion is what drives the psychedelic catchy pop rock tunes crafted by the oft-effervescent Brad Oberhofer. Drawing on influences ranging from Brian Wilson to Descartes, the 21 year old is fixated on the idea of making philosophically minded, energetic melodies that just make people smile. After moving to Brooklyn from his hometown of Tacoma, Washington, to attend New York University, Brad quickly immersed himself in the indie rock community forming the 4 piece which is now quite simply, Oberhofer. Catching the attention of Glassnote Records, the band officially joined the labels' roster over the summer of 2011.
"A kaleidoscopic piece of chamber-pop, featuring pianos, harp, strings, and whirring keyboards, with Brad's heartfelt vocal floating over the circus below." --Spin
"Oberhofer hones his formula on the album's grandiose opening track, "HEART", which makes use of some sparkling keys and orchestral strings." --Pitchfork
"A sparkly pop debut that fits well beside works by labelmate Phoenix." --Billboard (Best Bets of 2012)
