Watch Real Estate’s Dazed Cover of the Cranberries’ ‘Linger’
New York quintet takes on another '90s hit after Weezer's "Say It Ain't So"
Real Estate are still in the midst of touring in support of their third studio album Atlas, but they found some time to stop by the A.V. Club’s offices to take part in their Undercover series. Frontman Martin Courtney explains that he ultimately chose to cover the Cranberries’ “Linger” because it was “only four chords,” but the SPIN profile subjects were able to turn the dreamy ’90s hit into a dazed guitar jam that wouldn’t have sounded out of place on 2011’s Days. Watch the cover above, and if you’re itching for more check out the band’s recent rendition of Weezer’s “Say It Ain’t So.”
