New Jersey outfit Real Estate will open for Girls in New York City at Terminal 5 on January 14, 2012. The band recently launched a North American tour in support of its new album, Days, which wraps up with a sold out show in NYC at the Bowery Ballroom on Nov. 23. Real Estate also recently premiered the first music video from the album, for the album’s lead single “It’s Real,” filmed in Livingston, NY and in Brooklyn, and directed by Weird Days. They also stopped by Relix Magazine for a stripped-down session, watch the Alex Bleeker-penned “Wonder Years” at the link above.

Days was recorded over the course of five patient months in a remote New Paltz, NY barn-cum-studio with the help of Kevin McMahon (Titus Andronicus, The Walkmen), 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 fact that the sonic formula Real Estate developed and shared with their debut album (Real Estate, Woodsist 2009) heralded 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.
