Single Review – Franz Ferdinand – Feel The Love Go

Prior to the release of Always Ascending, Scottish rockers Franz Ferdinand dropped Feel the Love Go; a song founded in a squelchy synth bassline and the quickening *tss* *tss* of hissing cymbals. With lyrics seemingly written by just throwing together a bunch of repeated words – though undeniably pretty catchy – the band, including new members Dino Bardot and Julian Corrie, have put forward nothing hugely ground-breaking, but something a no-nonsense robotic rock record, perked up with some sax towards the end to round off the track in a more promising way than it starts. The instrumentals are definitely the best quality of the song, merging sizzling electronics with back-to-basics indie. The band’s fifth studio album is set for release on February 9th.
