It had been four years since the last offering from Franz Ferdinand, but ‘Love Illumination is the band’s second video in less than four weeks. Describing the video directed by Tim Saccenti, the band claimed it as “[a]bsurdist horror pantomime choreography cross-dress frog-head bosom sparkle guillotine phew worra scorcha”. Juxtaposing suits, nipple tassels and Alice In Wonderland-esque room proportions “bizarre” would probably have cut it. They’ve lost the skinny ties of their youth but this is still unmistakably Franz.

‘Love Illumination’ features on a double A side pink 7″ with ‘Right Action’ and is available right now.
