TRAVIS have been showcasing songs from their new album, Ode To J Smith, at selective festival and club dates across Europe and most recently the Far East. Currently in the throes of a full UK tour, Ode To J Smith is released this Monday, the day they play Liverpool.
Ode To J Smith is described as Travis’s loudest, edgiest and most arresting record since their debut. Written in five weeks and recorded in just 14 days, it’s the sound of a band re-born, re-inspired and re-energised. Says bassist Dougie Payne, “we wanted this record to have some rough edges. In the past we might have been guilty of making really beautiful things that were so smooth you almost slipped off them. You can’t say that about this one. We really pushed ourselves. It’s like prog-pop; lots happening in about three minutes”.
