March 5th sees the release of the second single from Real Estate's 2011 album, Days. The video for 'Easy' sees the band represented by a street team with questionable promotional methods; forcing passers-by to listen to the band and trying to force radio DJs to play their record. The humorous video culminates in the street team kidnapping the DJ in their Real Estate-branded van.
The single will be released on "7 vinyl as well as on digital formats. The lead track 'Easy' will be backed with 'Exactly Nothing'. Real Estate's debut album, Days, was produced by Kevin McMahon - known for his work with Titus Andronicus and The Walkmen - and was released on Domino Records last year, to critical acclaim, with Q, Uncut and The Fly all including the album in their end of year 'best of' polls.
