Real Estate preps second LP with free song 'It's Real'

Remember two years ago, when Real Estate was a scrappy upstart with a summery 7-inch single? Ah, the memories. Things have changed since then: Real Estate released a self-titled  full-length, for one thing, which the New Jersey trio follows up in October with “Days.”

Because October is a long way off, and Real Estate wants to give you a little taste early, the band is giving away the first single, “It’s Real,” in exchange for your e-mail address here. The tune is classic Real Estate, if such a term applies to a band with a slender catalog. Chiming guitars cascade around wistful, echoing vocals while the rhythm section makes a series of tight little turns.

“Days” is out Oct. 18 on Domino Records, and Real Estate is on the road through Aug. 2:
