Oh, for more bands like Real Estate. The New Jersey trio were initially lumped in with the chillwave subgenre that reached its hazy apotheosis last year, but there’s nothing ‘borrowed’ about their particular brand of nostalgia. Their second album was every bit as poignant as its self-titled predecessor, deftly pulling at the same thread of ’80s guitar lyricism that runs through the work of Johnny Marr and Vini Reilly. Real Estate’s ability to conjure past idylls without the crutch of lo-fi production became a whole lot clearer in the light of ‘Days’. AD
