Real Estate - Atlas

Back in 2011, the expansive New Jersey indie group and onetime Band To Watch Real Estate took a big leap forward with Days, their second album, which deepened the band’s sound and sharpened their melodic sensibilities. Well, it looks like it’s time for another leap. The band’s third album Atlas, which they’ve only just now announced, will arrive in March. They recorded the LP with producer Tom Schick at Wilco’s studio in Chicago, and first single “Talking Backwards” is a beautifully starry-eyed jangle-rock tune, a welcome indication that this band still hasn’t hit its peak. Watch the video below.

  1. never have I enjoyed a youtube video in 240p as much as this

  2. The single is on iTunes! This will have to hold me over ’til March.

  3. Love this band.

  4. Ooh I love it.

  5. Hardly a progression, but in this case that suits me fine.

    • yeah, sounds pretty Days-y to me, but i effing love it!

    • Feels a bit more nuanced than everything on “Days.” Cleaner sounding and not as hazy. It’s definitely in the same vein but it feels like the natural progression/conclusion of that “Days” sound.

  6. Beautiful song from a beautiful band.

  7. The boys are back in town! Rejoice! Rejoice!

  8. ridgewood in the house, solid bros.

  9. Well this is just fantastic.

  10. I just went through and upvoted all of your comments because this song makes me ridiculously happy.
