Daughter - Get Lucky (Daft Punk cover)

Daughter Press Shoot 09-08-11

The London folk trio Daughter are really good at a lot of things, but they're especially good at covers. Rather than stick within constraints one might consider genre-appropriate, they often branch out into the delightfully absurd. This weekend on BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge, they covered Daft Punk's massive comeback single "Get Lucky." In the hands of singer Elena Tosca and her band, the track takes on a brooding, chilly air and soaring, synth-heavy soundscape, but that catchy beat and irresistible chorus are kept pretty much intact. Check it out.
