Franz Ferdinand

A mainstay of the Noughties indie-rock scene, Franz Ferdinand are best known for their air-guitar anthem ‘Take Me Out’ and eponymous Mercury Music Prize-winning debut album. A decade on, the band have expanded their musical range from its original foundations, with a move from choppy guitars towards new wave and electropop. Their latest album, Always Ascending, shows a new side of the band, offering melody-driven synth-beats that are perfect for the stage.
