Pumped Up Kicks - Foster The People (Live Cable Car Cover By Brad and James, The Vamps)
The Vamps’ frontmen have taken on Foster The People’s classic – and it sounds pretty darn wonderful with just an acoustic guitar and a cable car…
The Vamps may be super successful in their own right, but they’re not shy of covering other artists music – and when they do it THIS well, it would be a shame not to!
Brad Simpson and James McVey used their downtime in a cable car while away travelling the world – and miraculously going unrecognized – to record an acoustic cover of Foster The People’s ‘Pumped Up Kicks’.
With Brad on the guitar and singing lead vocals and James accompanying him, this half of The Vamps have created a rather stunning cover of this infectiously catch song.
Now we’re just waiting on Connor Ball and Tristan Evans to release a cover of their own too!
