LA electro duo Phantoms have shared footage of them mixing Kate Bush‘s’ Running Up That Hill’.
The 1985 single has been witnessing a resurgence after it featured as a prominent part of the storyline in Stranger Things 4, and it reached a new peak on the UK singles charts last week, landing at Number Two.
Now, the DJ duo – comprising former teenage actors Kyle Kaplan and Vinnie Pergola – have filmed themselves performing different mixes for different scenarios at dance festivals this summer.
“Every electronic festival for the next month,” they wrote in a caption above the footage of them pretending to perform at different festivals. You can view footage below.

I’m really impressed by this latest series. ”
In her most recent post, she added: “It’s all so exciting! Since the last post, ‘Running Up That Hill’ has gone to No. 1 in Norway and Austria. This is such great news and we just heard today that it’s up from No. 8 to No. 4 in the US ”
“The track is being responded to in so many positive ways. I’ve never experienced anything quite like this before! ” Bush added. “I just want to say a really big thank you to everyone in the US who has supported the song.
