Of they go at the trumpity Trump.



Banger



As part of the '30 Days 30 Songs' US election campaign, Franz Ferdinand have returned with a new song 'Demagogue' - their first new material since last year's collaboration with Sparks and since departure of long time member Nick McCarthy.

Considering frontman Alex Kapranos has been very anti-Trump on twitter, it comes as no surprise the song is a scathing attack on the republican candidate. With a creeping bassline, he sings "he's a Demagogue" while referring to several of Trump's remarks such as the infamous wall between the US & Mexico and about his "pussy grabbing fingers". There's an understandable air of resentment against Trump - a particular highlight being his "tiny vulgar fingers on the nuclear bomb".

The track is reminiscent of early Franz and is a potent reminder of why they're one of Scotland's best bands. A pleasing taste of what is surely to come when they release their 5th record. Josh Williams
