Franz Ferdinand - "Oblivion" (Grimes cover)


It's a Grimes fanboy world out there - first 2 Chainzshowed up to the VMAs in the same Versace pants, now Franz Ferdinand have decided to give the sultry acoustic cover treatment to "Oblivion" in a set they did for the French radio station Oüi FM. Our vote for best "Oblivion" cover still goes to Waxahatchee and Swearin'samped-up punk version, but we like how that fingerpicked guitar approximation of the original's synthy bassline, accompanied by Alex Kapranos' earnest voice, lends the song an excellent eerie quality. Check it out.
