A widescreen sweep of emotive and melodic indie rock - 'Closer' the new single from Travis is available for download from the 9th April and goes on general release on April 23rd.
The lead single from their forthcoming album The Boy With No Name, 'Closer' is the song says Fran "which bred the rest of the album"; an arena sized sound that can still whisper its secrets into the ear of each listener.
Travis have just returned from filming the promotional video in Los Angeles. Set in a supermarket, with each band member playing a store employee, Fran - clad in a bear suit as the store's mascot - breaks into song, shoppers and their trolleys engage in a synchronised dance routine and drummer Neil dances across the aisles with a customer, until the store's manager - played by long standing Travis fan Ben Stiller - breaks up the fun.
