Brooklyn synthpop duo, Holy Ghost! have joined the ranks of the Arctic Monkeys, Blood Orange's Dev Hynes, and about one thousand Youtube covers to offer their take on "Hold On, We're Going Home" by Canadian R&B recording artists, Drake. On Tuesday, October 22 Revolt.tv reported that Nick Millhiser and Alex Frankel of Holy Ghost! dropped by Seattle radio station 107.7 The End to share a number of unreleased demos as well as their rendition of Drake's platinum selling single.
Millhiser and Frankel took the crooning mid-tempo ballad and added a bit of dance floor flair to it. It's probably not going to light up the airwaves like the original did given the band's somewhat under-the-radar status. Nonetheless, it's a solid electronic reworking of an already infectious groove.
Holy Ghost! are currently on tour in support of their fantastic new album, "Dynamics." Check out the rest of tour dates below as well as an official download of the cover here. Hopefully, they'll be taking this one on the road with them!
