Travis Shares Single "Moving" from New Album 'Where You Stand'

Scotland's Travis is back after a five-year break with their seventh studio album, Where You Stand, due August 20 from their own label Red Telephone Box.

This video for a single called "Moving" shows the band in the cold darkness, knitted caps and all, with their breath animated in real time (no post production either). According to the band's website, this is "to give the effect of plucking shapes and figures out of thin air". According to Motionographer.com, the London-based team of Tom Wrigglesworth and Matt Robinson, aka Wriggles & Robins, created the intriguing visuals.

The instrumental intro sounds like it could be any mellow indie song, until Fran Healy's vocals take hold and reminds the listener why this group will continue to captivate fans. He takes a soaring melody and strings it along, conveying a breathy warmth with every syllable. It all seems so effortless.

Check out the video, along with some U.S. tour dates coming up this fall, below.

"If we tried to start A&M in today's environment, we'd have no chance. I don't know if I'd get a start as a trumpet player. But I keep doing this because I'm having fun."
