Riff: Franz Ferdinand – “Evil Eye”

Aug 27, 2013

Some people get a freak outta me/Some people can’t see what I can see

from Evil Eye lyrics by Franz Ferdinand

Resembling a post-punk take on a Scooby Doo soundtrack, the tight funk rhythms, spiky guitars and eerie theramins of “Evil Eye” help provide a groovy backdrop to a paranoid ramble from a troubled soul who doesn’t believe in God but does believe in crawling creatures no-one else can see; [LISTEN].
