2013’s ‘Where You Stand’ represented something of a retreat to familiar territory after the spikier ‘Ode To J Smith’, with soaring choruses and copious jangle to the fore once again. ‘Everything At Once’ refines that model across its rather petite thirty-three minutes. Of course, the hoary old clichés of indie hackery mean that my cynicism should kick in around about now, but it’s just not that simple. The hooks are copious and the vast majority of these tracks take only a few plays to lodge in the memory. Dark and tortured this is not but when the euphoric indie-pop itch needs a scratch, Travis deliver.
