Video: Real Estate – “It’s Real”

Lovers of quality jangle-pop and adorable pooches can unite for Real Estate‘s new music video. The video for “It’s Real”, one of many standouts of their stunning sophomore full-length Days, was produced by Weird Days and features the NJ-based band playing with a scruffy dog — watching TV and running around a sunlit meadow. There’s not much experimentation in the video; it’s just something that makes you feel good. The same can be said for Days, a highly recommended release that is one of my most-played albums of the year. The video perfectly captures the hazily upbeat infectiousness Real Estate produce.

Real Estate are currently on tour. Check the dates below, and also an MP3 of one of Days‘ best tracks, “Green Aisles”:
