Real Estate – “Talking Backwards” Video

By Tom Breihan / January 14, 2014 - 12:02 am

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.
