Real Estate - Wonder Years

Real Estate

Days

Domino; 2011

Lost love. How tragic, but its never sounded quite so stress-free and chill as Real Estate makes it. "Wonder Years" comes off of Real Estate's latest, Days. A clean natural drum kit opens into a bright acoustic progression and a repetitive, but extremely catchy, bass line. The thin and somber vocals talk about the love that could have been and perhaps, should have been. The lyrics are in their most simple form. Real Estate does not try to be complex or thick in their writing. In fact, this song sounds like it was written alone in bed in about five minutes. The track is short and sweet, and will likely be stuck in your head for Days. Despite its extreme simplicity, "Wonder Years" is poignant and powerful.
