VIDEO: It’s Real” (Dir. by Weird Days)

Real Estate hires either the best or worst street team of all time (you be the judge) in the music video for “Easy,” directed by The Best Show on WFMU’s Tom Scharpling. The band launches its 2012 Winter tour this Saturday in Manhattan with a sold out show at Terminal 5 along with Girls and King Krule — they’ll also make their first appearance at Coachella this year.

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.
