Produced by Joe Goddard and Alexis Taylor from Hot Chip and mixed by David Fridmann, ‘Right Action’ gets its visuals care of Director Jonas Odell, also responsible for the band’s ‘Take Me Out’ video. ‘Right Action’ captures the famously high octane Franz Ferdinand live experience in full flight against a riotous kaleidoscope of imagery. Or, in other words: “The Intellect Vs The Soul, played out by some dumb band.”
Last week saw the four piece announced as headliners on November’s Harvest Festival, where they will play their first Australian dates since 2010. Franz Ferdinand are still Alex Kapranos, Nick McCarthy, Bob Hardy and Paul Thomson. There’s still no one like them.
Their forthcoming record, Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action, to be released in Australia on Friday August 23.
