Travis Japan Share Wildly Anticipated Debut Album ‘Road To A’

Travis Japan have released their highly-anticipated debut album, Road To A, out now via Capitol Records. To celebrate the project, the band has also shared a music video for album standout “Okie Dokie!”. Check that out below.

Roughly one year after signing with Capitol Records, Travis Japan brings their debut album to the world. The project symbolizes Travis Japan’s pursuit of the essence of entertainment and fully encapsulates everything about Travis Japan as the group prove to the world that they are authentic to who they are. The “A” within the album title is an abbreviation for authenticity.

The album also includes celebrated previously released singles like “Candy Kiss.” The accompanying visual was choreographed by Nicky Anderson, who has done choreography for K-POP sensation BTS and Travis Japan’s debut song, “JUST DANCE!” Directed by YUANN, the founder of the Japanese creative group kidzfromnowhere, the music video features a grand space setting using CGI and special effects makeup to help portray the plot line.

In the music video, Travis Japan gets captured by aliens. They showcase their captivating choreography, inspired by blowing kisses, and they enchant the universe with their dance. The music video showcases colorful costumes, departing from the chic image of their previous release.

The album follows the group’s first release for Capitol Records, the Moving Pieces EP. The project features four tracks: “Charging!,” “Still On A Journey,” “Keep On Smiling,” and “Moving Pieces.” The latter served as the pre-release single and is written and produced by Poo Bear, who has worked with artists such as Justin Bieber and Billie Eilish.

“Moving Pieces” came to be after Travis Japan visited Miami where Poo Bear is based and spent a day recording the song under his guidance, including one-on-one vocal practice sessions and even cultural exchanges where Travis Japan taught Poo Bear some Japanese.
