Oberhofer has offered us a taste of their upcoming EP, NOTALGIA, with “Earplugs,” a playful number carrying a serious sound. Beginning with frantic drums and delicate guitar work, the song embarks on a coming-of-age journey, rounding up the usual suspects that define Oberhofer’s sound: unique melodies, ear-catching rhythms and bright guitars. This time, however, there is something different in the air. Maturity pours out of the speakers once the chorus hits; powerful sounds fill the auditory landscape as a wall of reverb drenched guitars and double-time kicks force us to slow down and soak it all in, as if this is the first time we are truly hearing Oberhofer. “Can you hear me now?”. Loud and clear, Brad. Loud and clear. Stream it below.
NOTALGIA comes out April 23rd via Glassnote.
