LOOK: Real Estate Shares New Song: “Talking Backwards”

 

On January 1st, Real Estate started a mysterious countdown on their Instagram page, a countdown that ended last night with the release of "Talking Backwards." Each day since the start of the new year they've posted a different picture of what appear to be separate pieces of some big watercolor painting. Yesterday the pictures were replaced by short videos with clips of the new song. Not quite as sudden and extravagant as Beyonce, but we'll hand it to them. 


 

 

See what all those pictures and video clips amounted to in the group's first single from their upcoming LP (Atlas) this spring: "Talking Backwards." The track features Real Estate's signature jangly guitar riffs, simple upbeat tempo and warm airy vocals, all atop a slightly darker tone of miscommunication and frustration.

 

Even though the track doesn't have a verse by Blue Ivy, we still will be pressing repeat on this track. Check out more details about Atlas (out March 4th via Domino) below.
