Single Review: Franz Ferdinand – Can’t Stop Feeling (Domino)

By | Published on Monday 6 July 2009

Franz Ferdinand

Another single from the quartet’s third album, this effort is at least better than its woeful predecessor, ‘No You Girls’. It’s still as shoddy in its production, 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 ten 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. TM
