[Watch] Franz Ferdinand Cover Grimes' "Oblivion"
For a band that doesn't veer too far from a sound that works (see: Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action), Franz Ferdinand completely surprised us this morning. During a visit to French radio station Ouï FM, they took on Grimes' glistening, synth-laden track "Oblivion." With nought but two acoustic guitars and vocal chords, the Scottish quartet turned the song into a calming ballad complete with romantic harmonies. It sure came from out of the blue, but damn is it worth a listen.
