We asked an AI language model to write a bio for our band in the voice of Forrest Gump:

“Well now, let me tell you a little somethin' about Real Estate, that there American indie rock band. They started back in 2009 in Ridgewood, New Jersey. You see, they got this real nice sound, all laid-back and melodic. It's a mix of indie rock, jangle pop, and dream pop, just like a sweet little tune floatin' in the breeze.

Real Estate was put together by a fella named Martin Courtney, who sings and plays the guitar. Then you got Julian Lynch strummin' another guitar, Alex Bleeker holdin' it down on the bass, Matt Kallman ticklin' those keys, and their drummer, Sammi Niss, keepin' the beat. They all came together and made some mighty fine music.

Their first album, self-titled 'Real Estate,' came out in 2009 and folks loved it. They said it had these sun-soaked melodies and lyrics that make you think about life. After that, they put out another album called 'Days' in 2011, and it made 'em even more popular. People really took a likin' to their laid-back style.

In 2014, Real Estate released 'Atlas.' Oh boy, it was somethin' special. The music was so pretty, like a dream. It had all these fancy instruments and thoughtful themes. They just kept on goin' with albums like 'In Mind' in 2017 and 'The Main Thing' in 2020. Each time, they grew and showed their skills as musicians and songwriters.

Real Estate has been all over the place, playin' their tunes for folks far and wide. They've been to North America, Europe, and other parts of the world. People can't get enough of their easy-goin' melodies and heartfelt lyrics. It's like takin' a stroll down memory lane, thinkin' 'bout life and all its twists and turns.

With their hazy guitars, harmonies that soothe the soul, and words that make you reflect, Real Estate has built themselves quite a fanbase. Critics love 'em too, sayin' their music is timeless and mesmerizin'. They're still goin' strong, with Sammi Niss keepin' the beat on them drums. Real Estate is a band that'll make you smile and make you think, just like life itself.”
