Real Estate - atlas

Real Estate's third album "atlas" is a distilled refinement of indie pop and melodic alternative. Sweet mellow harmonies, easy rhythms and perfectly judged jingle jangle guitars.

"Past lives" is a wonderful song, truly wonderful. One of the best songs in recent years. Perfectly judged and switched onto the album's mood of melancholy and weariness amid the sweet songs. Its sweet but its also bittersweet, great melodies such as on "Talking backwards" but these underpin feelings of melancholy and nostalgia in the lyrics. Its a very fine album indeed.
