Real Estate – “Darling” Video

Despite a flurry of side projects, collaborations, and personnel changes, Real Estate haven’t released an album since 2014’s Atlas. Now New Jersey’s merchants of suburban domestic reverie are ready to return with In Mind, their fourth album and first since the departure of founding guitarist Matt Mondanile.

Today they’re sharing the Weird Days-directed video for “Darling,” the album’s opening track. It’s some prime Real Estate: Brightly chiming guitar arpeggios and moody synth chords float atop a languid rhythm section, imagining an alternate reality in which the Byrds emerged from the chillwave era. Atop the urgently gentle backdrop, Martin Courtney once again gently croons about romantic love and his longing for reconciliation: “Impatiently I wait for you.”
