Morning Music Notes – Phantom of the Ropera
Franz Ferdinand dropped two singles on us on the same now. Right Action has already seen a video. Next up is Love Illumination, which is yet another eccentric video from the Scots.
The band play in a small, black and white tiled Alice in Wonderland-esque low ceiling room, featuring some outrageous costumes, horse masks borrowed from the Harlem Shake, and other oddities. Check out the rock track below.
