Mid-aughts indie rock mainstays Franz Ferdinand are back in a big way, which I’ve got to say, makes my 15-year-old self extremely happy. Even better, the Scottish quartet haven’t just reunited for a brand new album– Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action is due later this month– but have also formed a brand new collaborative project entitled The North Sea. “Evil Eye” finds Franz teaming up with Norwegian producer Todd Terje, and the results are pretty much glorious: dynamic, funky, and disco-inspired. Who else feels like dancing?
