Franz Ferdinand – Can’t Stop Feeling

Another single from the quartet’s third album that seems to have seeped out of all consciousness, this effort is at least better than its woeful predecessor, No You Girls You Never Know.

It’s still as shoddy in its production though, with potentially beefy riffs subdued to childish rasps, exposing Alex Kapranos’ voice for the dry, tuneless annoyance it really is. Without the sparkling guitar of genuine hits like ‘Do You Want To’ and ‘Michael’, it’s horribly out of place, and grinds a message that the next decade will be minus one of the previous 10 years’ most exciting bands, unless they buck up their ideas fast.

They formed to make girls dance. Now they exist solely to put them to sleep.

4.1/10

Release Date: 06 Jul
