Biography

Written and recorded across a globe-spanning variety of inspiring locations from London to Berlin, New York and rural Norway, with input from some of pop’s top producers, Travis’s seventh album Where You Stand isn’t exactly the work of a new young band with limited resources fearlessly delivering a remarkable debut. So why does it sound like it could be?

Product Description

Limited Edition CD/DVD featuring two bonus audio tracks 'Anniversary' and 'Parallell Lines'. Bonus DVD including videos for Another Guy, Where We Stand, Moving and the Making Of The Album: Where You Stand. Sounding and looking more invigorated than ever, the Scottish band, with "Super Swede" Michael Ilbert (The Hives/The Cardigans/The Wannadies) on production duties, are now back after a five year hiatus with the follow-up to 2008's 'Ode to J. Smith'. The album was written and recorded across London, Norway, New York, and took in a production stint at Berlin's legendary Hansa Studios. This was enjoyed particularly by the band's Bowie-fanatic Dougie Payne, who revelled in layering the famous synthesisers of 'Low' fame onto 'Different Room'.

It's good to have Travis back. Where You Stand is a fairly softly-spoken album, but powerful still, comprising some great melodies, solid performances and a welcome degree of Travis-centric experimentation. There are some questionable falsetto passages. Expect a dodgy lyric here or there, and grating childlike simplicity *cough Reminder*, but I think that's about every Travis album out there. All that I hold dear in Travis - singalongs, ponderous wee songs, satisfying instrumental breaks (not talking about solos) - is here. There are also several precious moments of stark beauty where all I can picture is a vast blanket of stars in an inky sky. Not kidding. It's wonderful. Fran sounds great, whether cooing or soaring, and Dougie and Neil have rarely sounded better together. Additionally, the finest (mainly) piano-led track Travis have ever done is here ("Mother"). It's also nice to see the band finally split the load on songwriting. Turns out Dougie wrote most of my favourites here this time around. Last words: "AND EVVVVVRYTHINNNNNNG!"

Although lacking a "killer" track this album does reward repeated listening and is as good an example of guitar based pop/rock as you will find nowadays. It's what I would term a "pleasant" album which does suggest a lack of muscle, but this is really the only criticism I can make. Fran Healy is in good voice, there are tunes aplenty and the playing is robust yet understated. The production is crystal clear which gives the overall sound a clarity and sharpness which is appreciated. This is a good album to listen to as we tempt fate with the last barbecues of summer.

In one word? - Mellow.

There's something comforting about a Travis album. A sense of familiarity that allows you to relax, sit back, and enjoy the music. Even the Fran Healy album Wreckorder felt like a Travis album, and it's this consistency that keeps fans coming back for more.

There are touches of innovation on this album, but you could easily play this in shuffle mode with The Invisible Band, The Man Who, and The Band With No Name, and you wouldn't lose any sense of the Travis style.

You could argue that a band that has stayed largely unchanged in terms of style is a band standing still, but when the melodies and arrangements are this beautiful, I think any Travis fan would be disappointed if it didn't sound "just like Travis".

Like an old friend you haven't seen in a while, you want them to be as good as you remember. Thankfully, Travis have grown old gracefully, and this album is proof that you can't have too much of a good thing.

'Where You Stand' is the seventh studio album from Scottish rockers Travis.

It's been a protracted five year hiatus since the unequivocally disappointing Ode to J. Smith. Since then Fran Healy et al. have gone back to the drawing-board. 'Where You Stand' is a return to form that will be warmly welcomed by their loyal and devoted followers.

In 1999, Travis' second album The Man Who sold (a now unimaginable) 3 million records. It is no coincidence that the artwork of their latest offering returns to the desolate horizon and familiar typography. Juxtapose this with the artwork of Ode to J. Smith and you can understand why, on the surface, Travis fell astray a little. Whilst this is all clearly symbolic its strikingly apparent that these differences are symptomatic of the music itself too. In 'Where You Stand' Travis return to the mid-tempo ballads and melodious radio-friendly pop but with a synth driven tint applied by new producer Michael Ilbert. Spearheaded by the boyish Fran Healy, the band remain tender and never shy of exposing their soft underbelly and lyrically the album is unambiguously simple but honest.

'Where You Stand' will not recapture the accolades that showered 'The Man Who' but instead recapture the underrated cult sound with inoffensive melody that brought the loyal fans back to their music time and time again.

Welcome Back!
