Video of the Moment #1810: FFS

By on Friday, 22nd May 2015 at 6:00 pm

I wasn’t sure what to make of FFS – the supergroup formed from the merging of minds from Franz Ferdinand and Sparks – to be honest. it’s like chocolate and peanut butter; they’re two great things that are amazing on their own. On the other hand, put them together and they’re also very good. I think in the case of both of these bands, legends in their own right by themselves, it was a matter of like a Brian Eno-esque Oblique Strategies to do something completely out of the box and merge creative forces.

So far, the strategy has paid off, at least to my ears. ‘Johnny Delusional’ is the first promo video the new collective have made, as described on their press sheet, they were very cognisant of the importance of their first video outing: “The first video for a brand new band sets the tone of how they may be perceived forever and we wanted a video that was mysterious, kinetic, artistic, and, well, made us look good.” See if you agree by watching the video for the single below.

‘Johnny Delusional’ will be released on the 8th of June on Domino Records.
