Franz Ferdinand "Love Illumination" / "Right Action"

Franz Ferdinand "Love Illumination" / "Right Action"
Franz Ferdinand have a new album and a North American tour on the horizon, and the Scottish dance-rock outfit have given fans a taste of what's in store by sharing two new tracks from Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action.

"Love Illumination" sports crunchy rock riffs that contrast with quirky vocal harmonies, horn blasts, giddy organ leads and a boppy one-two beat. The gritty tones reemerge on "Right Action," but with more of a dancefloor-oriented rhythmic pulse and choppy funk undertones.

Both songs feature simple visuals that animate the title and band name and evoke the album cover, but they don't quite amount to proper music videos.

Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action is out on August 27 through Domino.
