Past Event
Throughout various lineup changes, Franz Ferdinand have continued to construct modern-rock songs that are often inventive and lyrically thoughtful. “Always Ascending,” the title track from the Scottish group’s new album, begins with leader Alex Kapranos crooning romantically over a starry-eyed landscape of stark piano before the song takes off into an electronic-pumped ’80s dance-pop groove. Throughout all the song’s variations, Kapranos maintains a reserved, Bowie-like cool while the rest of the band simulate a Duran Duran vibe. “Feel the Love Go” is another neo-funk tune that coats Franz Ferdinand’s traditional guitar sound with a sheen of electronic glitz. “See, the things that you do are not who you are,” Kapranos advises amid choppy guitar riffs, a wash of keyboards and squalling saxophone.
