Watch Franz Ferdinand cover Grimes’ “Oblivion”

    Franz Ferdinand’s latest album, Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action, succeeds because the Scottish rockers return to the fun-loving, slightly kitschy ways of their early 2000’s output. During a recent in-studio performance for French rock station Ouï FM, they take a similar approach with an out-of-left-field cover of Grimes’ “Oblivion”. Armed with two acoustic guitars, the band turns the glitchy, synthy pop number into a Beatles-esque ballad, complete with chipper backing harmonies and frontman Alex Kapranos’ folksy croon reminiscent of the perpetually-romantic George Harrison. Watch the replay below.
