What do you love about the Britpop era? Are you more with the edgy guitars or the easy melancholia? The Scottish band is amongst the ones who influenced many of our favs from emerging artist Finn Askew to Jake Bugg. Travis BBC versions of ‘Driftwood’ and ‘Flowers In The Window’ are pure folk delights. Twinkling like little stars, the guitars shine melodically. “Wow, look at you now/Flowers in the window/It’s such a lovely day/And I’m glad you feel the same,” joyfully sings Fran Healy. Love, hope and positivity, that’s the key when we listen to The Invisible Band. The cheerful Britpop Scottish legends put together catchy riffs, sad and sweet lullabies, all produced by Nigel Godrich, the man behind Radiohead’s best works. Don’t miss the celebrations and get your tickets for the US tour here!
