Real Estate return to Cambridge Junction to showcase material from their new album In Mind, out 17 March.

Real Estate, formed in 2009, is an American Indie Rock band that originates from New Jersey. The band is currently signed to London independent label, Domino Records.

The band first came together during the summer of 2008, when lead guitarist and front man Martin Courtney returned to New Jersey after finishing college, and started writing songs with school friends and fellow Weezer fans, Matt Mondanile (guitar), Alex Bleeker (Bass) and Etienne Pierre Duguay (Drums).

After releasing various singles and an EP on local labels and supporting Californian indie darlings “Girls” on tour, the band was eventually picked up by American label Woodist, who released their self-titled debut album “Real Estate” in 2009.

The album established the band’s hazy form of psychedelic surf pop that has now gathered them a large fan base within the indie scene. The album saw Real Estate receive critical acclaim, with many reviewers praising the bands catchy summery harmonies and hazy riffs on tracks such as “Fake Blues” and “Atlantic City.” Many critics also drew comparisons to the likes of fellow New Jersey natives “Yo La Tengo” and “the Feelies”.

In 2011, after signing with Domino Records, and some roster reshuffling, Jackson Pollis replaced Duguay on drums, whilst Jonah Maurer came in on keyboard; Real Estate released their sophomore album, “Days”. Their second offering was again met with much fanfare from critics, who celebrated their consistency and clear song writing progress as a group.

The band released the album "Atlas" in 2014. It was yet another critical success for Courtney and co, but also saw some commercial success, as it debuted at number 34 on the US Billboard Chart. Both “Atlas” and “Days’ were ranked amongst the “The 100 Best Albums of the Decade So Far” by Pitchfork.

Real Estate have embarked on various frequent tours around the world, as well as playing large and well known festivals such as Coachella and Primavera sound.
