Ever since moving operations from his parent’s basement in Tacoma, Washington to Brooklyn, 20 year old Brad Oberhofer has been carefully honing his own brand of bedroom pop, which is as affecting and genuine as it is naively chaotic.
Charmingly skewed and ramshackle, Oberhofer’s classic, melody heavy indie rock sound manages to meld Brian Wilson sized hooks with expansive instrumentation and kooky, unpredictable song structures. The intense production mixes programmed drums with jittering live percussion and centers his exuberant yelps amongst keys, xylophones, whistles and washes of wall of sound guitar.
Backed with a powerhouse three piece band, Oberhofer has spent the past year touring with bands like Twin Sister, Sleigh Bells, Neon Indian and Bear In Heaven. When he’s not on the road, Brad has finished and self-released a vinyl 7 inch, as well as singles on Inflated Records and White Iris. Having just signed toGlassnote Records, a much anticipated debut album is due for early 2012.
