Real Estate – It’s RealBy Craig Smith • Nov 6th, 2011 • Category: Webcut of the Week
New Jersey outfit Real Estate’s shares their first music video from their album Days for the lead single “It’s Real”, filmed in Ridgewood, New Jersey and directed by Weird Days. Days was recorded over the course of five patient months in a remote New Paltz, NY barn-cum-studio, and is a coming of age moment for childhood friends Martin Courtney (Guitar and Vocals), Matt Mondanile (Guitar) and Alex Bleeker (Bass). A gorgeous suite of guitar-pop songs, Days is a testament to the sonic formula developed on their 2009 self-titled debut album, heralding the arrival of a new, genuine and enduring group of voices in American independent music. Days sees the band tighten and refine their brand of timeless, melodic and genuine music – consolidating the breezy sketches of their earlier work into considered, graceful pop songs.
