More Pressure than the Bottom of the Mariana Trench


This is the back cover of the ‘deluxe’ edition of the new Franz Ferdinand album. It’s not a good idea to try to gauge what someone is experiencing based on their work but I don’t think Franz Ferdinand are having fun right now. And they were never a band who found it easy to look like they were having fun in the first place.

Feel The Pressure

Three Years. Twenty-five dog years. An infinity in group years. And calculating every second.

Feeling Kind of Anxious

Calculate. Put two and two together and get four. Start again. And again. And again.

The Vaguest of Feeling

Run on the spot for mile after mile after mile. Thick breath on the back of the neck. Drenched. So near –

Feel The Envy

Swallow the bile. Look over a shoulder and force a smile. Drenched. So near and yet so far –

Can’t Stop Feeling

Can’t start feeling.
