In the height of summer, Travis' frontman Fran Healy directs a snow-covered noir clip for 'Idlewild'.

With more than a few shades of 'It's A Wonderful Life' thrown into this narrative piece, we watch as Fran Healy wanders the snow covered streets of Berlin before Josephine Oniyama, who has been following from a distance for the whole video, talks him out of a sad, watery grave.

Gorgeously shot and paced, it's another great cinematic development in Healy's work behind the camera.
