"Talking Backwards" - Real Estate [YouTube Official Music Video]

Published January 14, 2014

As of last June, Real Estate were hard at work on their third album, and now we're finally privy to a first glance at it. Atlas will be released on March 4th, and its lead single, "Talking Backwards," has been shared in the form of a music video. Watch above.

The video follows the band on tour and in the studio, giving an idyllic window into the lives of the New Jersey four piece. Visually, it gives a good summation of the band's sound: nostalgic, hazy, warm. "Talking Backwards" doesn't deviate much from the tried-and-true Real Estate formula of vaguely surf-y guitar lines intertwined with Martin Courtney's wispy vocals, but even after two full albums of songs that sound similar to this, I don't think the world's appetite for Real Estate has yet been satiated. These guys' tunes are incredibly easy to listen to, and they breeze by quickly enough to demand revisitation.

Atlas is available to preorder from Domino Records. Accompanying the album will be a U.S. tour that kicks off at the end of February (tickets are now available to purchase on Real Estate's site).
