Single Review: Franz Ferdinand – No You Girls (Domino)

By | Published on Monday 6 April 2009

Franz Ferdinand

As the second single from their third studio album, ‘Tonight: Franz Ferdinand’, ‘No You Girls’ packs a heavier punch than the last, ‘Ulysses’, ultimately pulling the band back to those big, foot-stomping sounds we’ve all come to know and, mostly, love about them. Even if it’s all getting a little bit samey now, you’d be a fool not to admit this isn’t a song that gets stuck in your head all damn day long. And then maybe a day after that… or perhaps a week. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, though – ‘No You Girls’ is actually pretty damn good; it has everything you’d expect from a Franz Ferdinand tune. Punchy guitar hooks, sexy lyrics and a sexier set of vocals (“kiss me, flick your cigarette then kiss me” – yes please!), and of course, that ever so important element of catchiness. Not their best, but certainly not their worst, either – try not to like it. I dare you. TW
