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:

The split 12" is out March 8th on DFA/XL on vinyl and digital. Here are the two tracklists:

12?:
A1 Friendly Fires – “Hold On”
A2 Friendly Fires – “Hold On (Instrumental)”
B1 Holy Ghost – “On Board”
B2 Holy Ghost – “On Board (Instrumental)”

Download:
01 Friendly Fires – “Hold On”
02 Friendly Fires – “Hold On (Instrumental)”
03 Holy Ghost – “On Board”
04 Holy Ghost – “On Board (Instrumental)”
05 Holy Ghost – “On Board (Dub)”
