The debut record by Oberhofer entitled ‘Time Capsules II’, will be released 16th April on Glassnote Records. The album is a bold statement for Brad Oberhofer, recorded in Brooklyn late last year with legendary producer Steve Lillywhite (U2, The Rolling Stones, Morrissey among many others).

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. Emotion is what drives the psychedelic, catchy pop-rock tunes crafted by the 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.
