Real Estate added to Auckland Laneway line-up

Disarmingly melodic and straight outta Brooklyn, NY, Real Estate proved once again on Days, 2011’s sophomore effort, that nothing beats washed-out guitars, lo-fi reverb, and plenty of sunshine. Like the summer you wish would never end, frontman Martin Courtney’s tales of the suburbs saw Days land at #9 in Pitchfork’s Album of the Year poll, while in 2012 the high school buddies played everywhere from Coachella to China.
