Future Nostalgia: Watch The Video For Real Estate's "It's Real" And Catch Them On Tour

Future Nostalgia shines a spotlight on newer bands who, in our eyes, are on the cusp of achieving legendary status. These are acts we normally wouldn't feature, but feel so strongly about we just couldn't resist.

Feels like we've been riding the Future Nostalgia train quite a bit lately. Which is great, because that means that there are more and more newer bands out there that we feel will stand the test of time and give us some great new musical memories to look back on.

Enter New Jersey's Real Estate, an act that craft breezy indie pop songs that elicit memories of riding your bike around your small town as a kid on hazy summer days. Specific, I know, but check out the cut "It's Real" off of their new album Days and you'll see how accurate that sentence is. That song now also has a video directed by Weird Days, which you can check out after the jump in all of its fluffy-dog-and-wood-paneled-den goodness.

The band played the Bohemian Beer Garden in Astoria last month, and our friend NYCTaper was there to capture the hour-long set live. They'll be back our way at Bowery Ballroom on November 23, but in case you're elsewhere in the world, you can check out their tour dates below to see when you'll be able to see Real Estate in your city.
