Kate Bush’s 1985 single “Running Up That Hill” conjures a soulfully dusky vibe not far off from the feelings Wye Oak elicited on their bass-and-keyboards excursion Shriek, so it’s a perfect fit for the Baltimore duo to cover on tour. And cover it they did Tuesday to kick off their encore at Washington, DC’s 9:30 Club. This follows Solange’s recent cover of “Cloudbusting,” another song from Bush’s Hounds Of Love, at Coachella. Watch fan-made video below.
Hell of a performance, right? Although I don’t know if any Kate Bush cover will ever top this.
