Did it take you 20 minutes of brainwashing? ;)


More like... 20 listens! How are you Swedish friend? :)

I love it, it's the first Franny song for a while that I've really felt a connection with. It's very personal, very pure. To me, I felt that Ode was written about someone else, someone that I didn't feel very associated to, so it's nice that Travis, er, I mean Fran is connecting with me and others around here again.


I feel the same. :)

I'm starting to like it myself, actually. Jotack, allt väl. Väldigt länge sen jag var inne och skrev ngt här, tyckte det kunde vara dags att visa upp sig. Hur själv?

I love it, and keep repeating it. I wish I had a mp3…
Such a lovely tune and bittersweet lyrics.

Thank you so much for posting this! :) The song is absolutely beautiful! I think it has a TBWNN feel to it.

Yeah, thanks for posting it!

Wow, it seems like I've been gone from here for ages, been busy with my final year of uni but now I've graduated I can finally get back on here, just in time for Wreckorder! A whole year of stress, coursework and exams is finally over and rewarded with a solo album by Fran, oh and of course a degree! I have nothing to do other than look for a job, hang around with family and friends and go to the gym now so I guess I'll be back on here for good now!

Anyway, sorry drifted a bit there, Buttercups sounds amazing, much more of a Travis feel to it than most of Ode To J.Smith, despite Ode To J.Smith being Travis and Buttercups being Fran, but don't get me wrong, I loved Ode To J.Smith! As some have already mentioned Buttercups has a feel of The Invisible Band, 12 Memories and The Boy With No Name to me aswell. I love it, it's really got me excited for October now, well October is my birthday month too so I suppose I'm always excited for it but this year's October should be great for obvious reasons!

Great song! And judging by the youtube clips, I think the whole album is going to be awesome. I can't wait.

WOW. I haven't been around here for like forever, I'd heard about Wreckorder but that was as far as it went, I mentioned my love for Travis to someone today so had a sneaky look on the forum and found this link.

And in an instant I'm totally back to the feeling I got when I fell in love with The Man Who/The Invisible Band, this song is just too good I'm over the moon.

Didn't expect THAT.

hm... my very first impression was: where is the bass? It's a very soft song, but... anyway, I like it! The lyrics are great. Thanks for posting!!
