Grammy-nominated band Franz Ferdinand stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers for a bass-driven performance of their single “Lazy Boy” on Thursday night (Aug. 9). The Scottish indie rockers let rhythm lead the way by following a hard bass and drum pattern throughout the track while blue lights flashed to the beat.
Vocalist Alex Kapranos, dressed in a black button-up and jeans, kicked the show off by playing a two-handed shaker that he would later toss aside for his usual guitar. With his signature baritone voice and sardonic lyrics, Kapranos led the band by singing “Am I gonna get up, get up? Never!” with the attitude of a pouting child.
“Lazy Boy” is off of the band’s fifth album, Always Ascending. Check out the performance below.
