Fresh Stuff from Real Estate

The band Real Estate gets tossed into the indie-rock genre, but the band has a reputation for crafting clean, orchestral pop gems that goes far beyond the usual rough-around-the-edges indie rock sound.

On its latest release, In Mind, the band furthers its clean, polished sound, while pulling in elements of psych, classic rock, dream pop and more. As Consequence of Sound reports:

“In Mind is a thorough portrait of Real Estate’s comforting scripture. The touching points are pretty much the same as before — the psych-tinged ‘60s rock of The Beatles and The Byrds through to the Pink Floydian prog touches and the misty guitar lines of ‘80s groups like Galaxie 500 and Echo & the Bunnymen — but the six-piece bring their own hazy lucidity. There’s the odd bit of reverb, but the band don’t douse their arrangements in it. Instead, it’s the clear symphonies, lustrous melodies, and singer Martin Courtney’s sweet vocals that take you into a kind of hallucination. In Mind invites you deep into the narrator’s subconscious. Grasping with these songs is like trying to reconstruct a dream you had the night before.”
