Real Estate share video for 'Stained Glass'
American indie band Real Estate have unveiled a first-of-its-kind interactive music video for new single, Stained Glass.
The immersive video, directed by Craig Allen, allows fans to colour and share a kaleidoscope-like animation featuring the band and surrounding wilderness. Real Estate have released their own colourful creation to inspire and encourage fan creativity.
Director Craig Allen said of the video project: “We were collectively excited by making a video that the band could create with their fans rather than for them. I've always been excited to find new ways of making content and this video is a fun—dare I say therapeutic—thing to play with, where you actually get to feel like you accomplish something at the end. That's what is exciting to all of us and we're extremely proud of what we've been able to create.”
Stained Glass – taken from the band’s latest album, In Mind will also be released on limited edition 7 inch vinyl alongside instrumental track, Two Part, Part Two. Each vinyl will be pressed using a unique mix of colours to reflect the new music video.
Real Estate will return to the UK during the summer months for a run of live dates, including festival appearances.
'Stained Glass' is available now on 7 inch vinyl via Domino Recordings.
