Franz Ferdinand is a band that many of you will remember but may have forgotten about. They are a Scottish quartet, best known for their 2004 top 5 hit, Take Me Out; which is a song that I will forever associate with a wonderful time in my life.
I was living in Pennsylvania, outside of Philly, taking classes and working as a tennis instructor. My ex and I used to blast this song in his car just about every time we would get in it, roll down the windows, and belt out the lyrics.
The band is still around and has since released two more well received albums, but my favorite will always be their self-titled debut. Between the sing-along choruses, sexually ambiguous lyrics, sick basslines, and beats galore, Franz Ferdinand are one of those bands that you can always put on at a party and dance the night away.
Known to consistently keep their fans updated during the recording process, Franz Ferdianand have said that they’ve decided to keep their upcoming album under wraps until it’s completely finished. Luckily, they’re already in the studio working hard on their untitled 4th album, but expect for it to be released sometime this year.
