Brooklyn’s remix artists turned legit dance mongers, Holy Ghost! are trading covers with English dance rockers Friendly Fires for an upcoming split 12″. Holy Ghost! takes on Friendly Fires’ “On Board” from the band’s self-titled XL Recordings debut. In an unlikely move, Holy Ghost! actually toned Friendly Fires’ “On Board” down a few notches, swerving away from their signature DFA-riddled sound, but still sounding very DFA, naturally.

Listen to the original “On Board”, then listen to Holy Ghost’s take on it below:
