Franz Ferdinand Hijack a Parisian Hotel in Live ‘Love Illumination’ Video
'Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action' due August 27 via Domino Records
Late last month, Franz Ferdinand shared “Right Action” and “Love Illumination,” the first two tastes off of the dancing Scots’ upcoming fourth album, Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action. The former track has since received the official music video treatment, while the latter now shows up in a sleek live clip filmed for La Blogothèque’s new-ish Empty Space series (we last saw Foals invade Hôtel de Ville for their haunting Holy Fire gem “Late Night”). Above, the returning post-punks take over Paris’ iconic Hôtel de Crillon. It’s a sharp short that matches the song’s angular hooks and punchy groove with tight cuts and close-up camera angles. You couldn’t have it any better.
