Travis (L-R): Dougie Payne, Fran Healy, Neil Primrose and Andy Dunlop

It’s been quite some time since we enjoyed the merry indie rock pleasantries from Scotland’s Travis. Minus frontman Fran Healy’s 2010 solo LP, Wreckorder (plus he did a little songwriting with The Killers later on), things have been pretty quiet since their 2008 release, Ode to J. Smith. Uh, why the silence guys?

Bassist Dougie Payne told in June, “You stay away as long as it takes, so you feel that hunger and desire to get back to it same as you did at the start.”

Fair enough. Well, this brings us to the band’s new video for “Moving,” the second single from their seventh album, Where You Stand, out August 20 on their own Red Telephone Box label (via Kobalt Label Services). The tune is classic Travis, endearing in every way. And the video sees Healy and his bandmates (Payne, guitarist Andy Dunlop and drummer Neil Primrose) embracing the night’s chilly winter air… as in a bunch of cool animations are projected onto each member’s breath. All in real time, too. Sound cool? Indeed it is.

To get an idea of how such a concept came about, Travis reveal their idea below:

And if you’ve missed Travis as much as we have, catch ’em on the road this fall for a headlining 12-date run. They perform at Webster Hall on September 23.
