The guys of Real Estate joined us in Austin during SXSW to play an acoustic version of “The Bend” as a part of the Dr. Martens #STANDFORSOMETHING campaign. Armed with nothing but their acoustic guitars, they still manage to re-create the beautifully melancholic emotions behind the song, albeit instrumentally stripped-down.
The #STANDFORSOMETHING campaign, which emphasizes individuality and the right to self-expression, highlights the work of bands and musicians who embrace their uniqueness, and the guys of Real Estate talk about that in their interview. “We’re a band that doesn’t really have an angle or a gimmick, and we’re not looking for one,” says bassist Alex Bleeker.
Check out what else they had to say and stay tuned for more #STANDFORSOMETHING performances soon.
