Franz Ferdinand - Franz Ferdinand want 'instant buzz' from songs

Franz Ferdinand want their songs to have an ''instant buzz'' as well as a deeper meaning.

The 'Take Me Out' band are working on their fourth album, 'Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action', and hope trying to marry concepts about Greek mythology with catchy hooks for fans to sing along to.

Singer Alex Kapranos said: ''There's lots of different things in one song, never mind across a whole album.

''For me, the best kind of music is music I can get an instant buzz from, I listen to it and makes me feel f***ing good, or maybe its dark and melancholic, but I still feel some kind of immediate buzz from plugging into somebody's humanity. It's got to have that, and that can be all you get from it. But for me, I want there to be a little bit more.

''I want it to be a hole that you crawl through into a whole universe.''

Describing one track, 'Fresh Strawberries', he explained to NME magazine: ''It's about searching for an answer, whether its religion, or a belief system, or just somebody to admire.''

About another track, titled 'Treason! Animals', is about ''laughing at the absurdity of it all in the face of desolation. Really, its just me imagining I'm king of the trees and animals.''

Franz Ferdinand - also made up of Nicholas McCarthy, Paul Thomson, Robert Hardy and Andy Knowles - are set to release 'Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action' later this year.
