“I  went to school and I was recording songs and whatever… And then I was going through all these hard times and it was like, ‘Man, I really gotta get up and do something!’…” – Brad Oberhofer on starting Oberhofer while at New York University to study music composition. [Speaking to Music Vice in the video interview, below]

Brian Banks (Music Vice Magazine) interviews [shouts enthusiastic questions at] Brooklyn, NYC based band Oberhofer. Filmed outside Lee’s Palace on Friday night at NXNE 2012, ten minutes before the band went on stage.
