This is the cover that no-one ever saw coming. Franz Ferdinand doing their take on Grimes‘ ‘Oblivion’ for French radio station Oui FM. I’m being serious. What’s even weirder is that the lyrics being sung by Alex Kapranos actually work in this situation, because for once you can understand Claire Boucher’s words. Watch it below.
