Franz Ferdinand are a Scottish Indie Rock band formed in Glasgow in 2002.They took inspiration for their name from a racehorse called ‘The Archduke Ferdinand.’After seeing the horse race on TV they began to discuss Archduke Ferdinand of Austria,whose assassination triggered World War 1.They decided it would be a good band name because of its sound and the implications of the Archduke’s death.
The song compares lovers to snipers aiming at each other.Lead vocalist Alex Kapranos told ‘NME ‘It’s about how you’d rather be shot than continue the tension.’
