Real Estate have shared a brand-new music video that also gives fans the limitless opportunity to create their own version. While the official visual shows the band performing their song “Gone” from the insides of a refrigerator – moving between trays of grapes, clams and eggs, a pile of frozen fish and a half-eaten birthday cake – they’re offering downloads of the raw footage, pre-prepared with a green screen for anyone to put them anywhere.
“We’ve always wanted to play inside of your refrigerator,” Real Estate says. “We unearthed this live in-studio performance of ‘Gone’ from way back in December, and our friends CALLEN were kind enough to make our dreams come true. We hope you enjoy this new video as much as we do!”

“Gone” is among the many tracks on Real Estate’s new album, The Main Thing. Just before the COVID-19 lockdown began, Real Estate celebrated the release of the record with their last live performances: a day-long tour of short concerts outside the locations of extinct New York City record shops, “The Outstore Thing.”
In addition to freezer drawers and refrigerator shelves, Real Estate have brought “Gone” and more of The Main Thing to remotely recorded sessions for World Cafe and AV Club. Throughout quarantine, the band has celebrated Bandcamp Fridays by selling limited runs of t-shirts, tie-dyed by singer-guitarist Martin Courtney, with proceeds benefiting Fair Fight Action’s fight for free and fair elections.
