Comic, radio host and raconteur Tom Scharpling has lately become a videographer to the stars. Well, to indie-rock stars, but still: he’s directed videos for the likes of Ted Leo, Titus Andronicus, Wild Flag and the New Pornographers.
His latest is a clip for Real Estate’s song “Easy,” which illustrates the take-no-prisoners approach of a hyper-aggressive street team ready to make sure you listen to the New Jersey band, OR ELSE.
The song is from Real Estate’s latest, “Days,” released in October on Domino. The band this week starts an extensive tour of North America, Europe and Australia/New Zealand, ending up at Coachella in April.
