Real Estate are back with news of their upcoming EP “Half a Human”, and have released the title-track as the first taster. “Half a Human” marks the band’s first single of 2021, following last year’s The Main Thing album and their cover of Galaxie 500’s “Plastic Bird” that dropped in August 2020. Real Estate‘s “Half a Human” EP consists of six songs that were first conceived during The Main Thing album sessions, and finished remotely by the band during the pandemic.

Vocalist and guitarist Martin Courtney says, “Life keeps changing and additional responsibilities and stresses keep being added, but this band is still here. When I was writing a lot of these songs, I was feeling a little weird about being in a band. Like, ‘how is this still a thing?’ I was feeling silly about it and then coming around to it at the same time. This is what we’re good at and it’s what we love to do and want to keep doing. I don’t want to do anything else.”

“Half a Human” marks the band’s first single of 2021, following last year’s The Main Thing album,

As part of their recent augmented reality Quarantour, Real Estate brought their brand of indie rock to everyone’s favourite kitchen appliance.

“We’ve always wanted to play inside of your refrigerator,” the band said of the “Gone” performance via press release. “We unearthed this live in-studio performance of ‘Gone’ from way back in December, and our friends Callen were kind enough to make our dreams come true. We hope you enjoy this new video as much as we do!”

Over the last decade, Real Estate have crafted warm yet meticulous pop-minded music, specialising in soaring melodies that are sentimentally evocative and unmistakably their own. The Main Thing dives even further into the musical dichotomies they’re known for—lilting, bright guitar lines set against emotionally nuanced lyrics, complex arrangements conveyed breezily— and what emerges is a superlative collection of interrogative songs as full of depth, strangeness and contradictions as they are lifting hooks.
