About Real Estate

A New Jersey outfit with a California sound, indie rockers Real Estate have been offering up their breezy melodies for more than decade.

∙ Real Estate’s core members were childhood friends, but the band didn’t take shape until 2008, after they’d all completed college and returned to their hometown of Ridgewood, New Jersey.
∙ Arriving in 2009, the group’s self-titled debut album earned a Best New Music tag from Pitchfork—a distinction that was also given to their next two LPs.
Days, their 2011 sophomore LP, hit No. 11 on Billboard’s Alternative Albums chart, and 2014’s Atlas did even better, reaching No. 7.
∙ Following the departure of guitarist Matthew Mondanile in 2016, lo-fi pop specialist Julian Lynch—another childhood friend from New Jersey—took his place in the band.
∙ For their 2017 album, In Mind, they enlisted producer Cole M.G.N., who’s also worked with Beck, Christine and the Queens, Ariel Pink, Julia Holter, and Nite Jewel.
∙ The band headlined a SXSW show promoting a new season of Twin Peaks and were introduced by actor Kyle MacLachlan in 2017.
