At last night’s show at the O2 Brixton Academy, Foster the People and The Kooks’ Luke Pritchard marked the end of their UK tour with a cover of the Alabama Shakes’ “Hold On”. The ensemble did their best to recreate the original’s dark, lonesome blues vibe, although Pritchard’s voice doesn’t have quite the soul-shaking depth as Brittany Howard does. Even still, it was a substantial enough moment to turn the venue into a giant choral sing-along if only for a few minutes. Watch the video below.
