Real Estate: FUV Live

Back in 2011, FUV host Darren DeVivo discovered Real Estate while listened to The Alternate Side—not bad when music discovery begins at home! Beguiled the New Jersey group's knack for jangling guitars, richly-woven melodies and catchy hooks, he became a fervent fan and recently interviewed Real Estate for FUV. The band released its third album, Atlas, earlier this year and the band has just announced a show at Terminal 5 on October 2. Just recenty, the guys visited FUV's Studio A for a session, available now in the FUV Vault. Watch videos of live performances of Real Estate's "Crime," "Primitive" and more.
