Franz Ferdinand
Franz Ferdinand
Formed in Glasgow in 2002, Franz Ferdinand’s self titled debut album put the band firmly on the map. Franz Ferdinand reached no.3 in the UK charts, won the Mercury Music Prize in 2004 and was named album of the year by NME. Their 2005 platinum selling second album You Could Have It So Much Better topped the UK album charts and reached the top 10 in the Billboard 200 in the US. The band’s acclaimed 3rd LP Tonight saw the band embark on a 2 year world tour, and chart at no 2 in the UK and the top 10, again, in the Billboard 200. In 2013 Franz Ferdinand released Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action charting at number 6 in the UK and top 10 throughout Europe.

To date, Franz Ferdinand have won 2 Brit awards and have been Grammy nominated 5 times, selling nearly 7 million records worldwide.

Omni
Omni – the band, not the hotel – are from the former home of the Braves: Atlanta. Playing lo-fi pop that channels the specter of the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, Omni brings you back to an era where any sane person was reeling from the unfulfilled promise of the Space Age and Age of Aquarius bleeding into the looming threat of “Morning in America.”

Omni distills the buzz and grit that snakes through the best of Television, Devo, and Pylon into surprisingly danceable, hook-laden slabs of raw, angular, sonic bliss. It’s still the summer of ’78, and pushing the roots of rock & roll to its limits remains in vogue. “Deluxe” serves as a fresh reminder that rock music can work outside of blues rooted, formulaic progressions without playing it safe behind a wall of effects.

Arty enough to impress record enthusiasts, yet melodically attractive enough to transcend to those who’ve never asked: “’Sister Midnight’ or ‘Red Money’?”
