Franz Ferdinand

“We are looking for something that allows us to ascend. To become lighter than our physical presence. To ascend from the emotion of every day. To ascend from what we understand. To ascend and know why we are ascending. To not know why we want to ascend. To be always ascending.” Franz Ferdinand found rebirth with their latest collection, the self-described philosophical and visceral Always AscendingIn the House Of Strombo’s kitchen party with the wildly wordy and witty Scottish men, they come armed with new cuts, iconic riffs and an exclusive rendition of an anthem from Drake. Through it all, they chat with George about early gigs, challenges within accepting an undeniable legacy, an appetite to create and the spirit of a good song.

We’ll deliver 3-hours of uninterrupted music for music lovers by music lovers, including premieres of new music from Cowboy Junkies, Espanola, Jaunt, Jonas Bonnetta (of Evening Hymns) and Smaller Hearts.
