Real Estate Share Video for New Single ‘Flowers’

    Ahead of the release of their new LP Daniel on Friday (February 23), Real Estate have served up one more single, ‘Flowers’. Following previous entries  ‘Haunted World’ and ‘Water Underground’, the track arrives with a music video directed by Magnus Carlsson, who also helmed Radiohead’s ‘Paranoid Android’ video. Check it out below.

    “For me, the greatest animated music video of all time is Magnus Carlsson’s iconic ‘Paranoid Android’ video for Radiohead,” singer Martin Courtney said of the video. “It looked like nothing else on MTV in 1997. So when we decided to do an animated video for our next single, that was at the top of the mood board. Let’s make something like the “Paranoid Android” video. It didn’t even occur to us that we could actually ask Magnus Carlsson himself to make a video for our song, or that he would actually do it, or that it would end up just as weird and beautiful as we could have imagined. Big thanks to the legend Mr. Carlsson for being up for working with us.”

    “This song is the closest Real Estate will ever get to like a Shania Twain style country rocker,” the band added of ‘Flowers’. “We keep saying we didn’t go to Nashville to make a country record – we didn’t – but then we put out shit like this. Who cares though this song rocks. Check out that guitar solo.”
