Oberhofer are four-piece from Brooklyn, New York. Frontman Brad Oberhofer writes and records all of the music himself, and they’ve had a rather fast couple of years. Having already played Coachella this year and made their late-night US debut on David Letterman’s show, they’ll soon be gearing up for Lollapalooza in August. Considering their debut album – Time Capsules II – only came out in March of this year, that’s pretty impressive.
They recently released a cover of Kanye West’s “Runaway”, and the wispy, spacey sounds mixed with the light, crunchy guitars lend the song an entirely new atmosphere. It’s a warped, grey landscape, but one that’s almost more attractive than the original. Even if you aren’t a Kanye fan, this just might be your thing. Trust me.
