Real Estate come to the Splendour stage armed with new album ‘In Mind’. It’s their fourth full length record, a portrait of a mature band at the height of its power.
Long respected for their deft lyrical hand and gorgeous melodies, ‘In Mind’ pushes the band in new directions, while still retaining the warmth and soft-focus narratives that we’ve all come to expect from Real Estate.
On the new record, the band fine-tunes the winsome songwriting and profound earnestness that made previous albums—2009’s ‘Real Estate’, 2011’s ‘Days’, and 2014’s ‘Atlas’—so beloved, and pushes their songs in a variety of compelling new directions.
Reflecting a change in lineup, changes in geography, and a general desire to move forward without looking back, the record casts the band in a new light—one that replaces the wistful ennui of teenage suburbia with an equally complicated adult version. It’s one of the band’s most sublime releases to date. Catch it live at Splendour in the Grass 2017.
