Oberhofer is essentially 20-year-old Washington native Brad Oberhofer, whose brand of pop music will make you want to hug all your primary school friends. The music preaches a sort of infectious joy that would make your mom embarrassed to bring you to your Aunt’s birthday party. Also, they sound like they could have the entire Human League discography in his iPod, which is in fact very cool indeed.
Here is Oberhofer’s “Away Frm U” (I totes h8 the shorthnd title), which oddly reminds me of Bejewelled and croissants (although I am well aware that the dancing thing that looks like said pastry probably isn’t so). They also performed their lead single on Letterman. That is here.
And here is “OoOoOoOoOoOoOo” (I’ll be honest. I am not sure how long the title is supposed to be). Any song that repeatedly uses oh’s in the chorus is a winner in my book. This version is acoustic; download the studio track here (via Indie Rock Cafe).
They’re so gonna get Glee-ed. I called it!
