Real Estate has delivered an eloquent cover of Goo Goo Dolls‘ 1995 hit single “Name.” This follows the Brooklyn-based rock quintet’s studio album The Main Thing released back in February.

Running approximately 30 seconds longer than the original song, the cover begins with an extended instrumental intro before lead vocal Martin Courtney enters with the first verse. The cover has been arranged with a light, slightly mellowed out sound, yet remains highly textured. In contrast to Johnny Rzeznik’s vocals in the original track, Courtney’s quaint vocals help deliver a performance that’s uniquely expressive. Julian Lynch plays the catchy riff on an acoustic guitar, complemented by vibrant synth notes by Matt Kallman, while drummer Jackson Pollis and bassist Alex Bleeker provide the rhythmic and tonal foundation of the cover.
