New Jersey’s Real Estate are heading to New Zealand in support of their second album Days, a gorgeous suite of guitar-pop songs with strolling rhythms, waves of reverb and beautiful three-part harmonies.

A coming of age moment for childhood friends Martin Courtney (Guitar and Vocals), Matt Mondanile (Guitar) and Alex Bleeker (Bass), Days was recorded over the course of five patient months in a remote New Paltz, NY barn-cum-studio with the help of Kevin McMahon (Titus Andronicus, The Walkmen.) Days is a testament to the fact that the sonic formula Real Estate developed and shared with their debut album (Real Estate, Woodsist 2009) heralded the arrival of a new, genuine and enduring group of voices in American independent music. Days sees the band tighten and refine their brand of timeless, melodic and genuine music- consolidating the breezy sketches of their earlier work into considered, graceful pop songs.

“They have briged the gap between the Byrds and REM and made the best American album since Lambchop’s Nixon” – SUNDAY EXPRESS 5 STARS
