Oberhofer Announce May UK Shows [Watch "Away Frm U" Video]


2012 is shaping up to be a big year for Oberhofer. The debut record by this fast-rising talent, entitled 'Time Capsules II', was released on Monday (16th April) on Glassnote Records.

The album is a bold and exciting statement for Brad Oberhofer, recorded in Brooklyn late last year with legendary producer Steve Lillywhite (U2, The Rolling Stones, Morrissey among many others).

After two highly charged performances in London this week, Oberhofer will return to the UK in May, with dates in London and Manchester.

Oberhofer UK tour dates:

Monday 21st May 2012 - MANCHESTER - Deaf Institute (£6.50)
Tuesday 22nd May 2012 - LONDON - Hoxton Bar & Kitchen (£7.50)

The band have also shared the video for new single "Away Frm U":

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.

"Brad and friends perform with an uninhibited sense of freedom and glee that sparkles strongest when combined with youth, their half hour on stage zips past in an unrelenting fizz of excitement… fun, infectious and charmingly endearing." - The Fly

"Beautifully played and recorded, ['Time Capsules II']'s dazzling guitars, elegiac piano and soaring strings are all rendered in crystal clarity. But what Oberhofer really does is write choruses - simple sentiments, written simply, expressed with passion and sincerity... It gleams like a skate-park erected in the clouds, and this is your invitation to strap on shin-pads, get up there and carve up some cumulonimbus." - NME

"Oberhofer sounds like he's expressing the kind of happy, life-affirming jitters you get when waiting on line for a roller coaster, or when you win concert tickets on the radio." - Pitchfork
