Brad Oberhofer might be only 20, but he's been around the musical block (and we mean that in a good way). The Brooklyn singer and multi-instrumentalist first earned critical shoutouts back in 2010 and has performed everywhere from random house parties to SXSW since then.

Instead of releasing a full-length from the onset, the Washington native has taken the slow and steady approach to his songs. He's been dropping sporadic teasers like the jangly lo-fi track "Away Frm U," but now the wait for the album is finally over.

Oberhofer has just announced the March release of his debut LP Time Capsules II, and if his first single "HEART" is any indication, it's going to be a happy explosion of indie rock chaos, complete with pianos, guitars, and even a harp.

We wanted to see it all go down ourselves, so last month we stopped by the Williamsburg recording studio to check in on the album's progress. Get a behind-the-scenes tour from Brad and download his new song for free below!
