Watch: Real Estate release music video for new single ‘Paper Cup,’ announce album ‘Main Thing’

Real Estate have announced their upcoming album The Main Thing with the release of a music video for their new single “Paper Cup.”

The ’80s-inspired video follows an animatronic squirrel named Chipper and the progression of his career performing at Chipper’s, a Chuck E. Cheese-esque children’s arcade centre. Scenes cut back and forth as Chipper performs present-day for just one boy in the arcade, to flashbacks of him performing for large crowds. Lyrics like “Was I ever that young, or was I always old?” play on Chipper’s nostalgia as he reminisces on the better days of his career.

“It’s a song about questioning your chosen path in life and searching for meaning in what you do,” says frontman Martin Courtney in a statement.
