Daughter Covers Daft Punk

Easily the most addictive slice of modern disco goodness on the charts these days, Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" has quickly become an international anthem for party-goers young and old. With the flashy appeal of its disco heyday beat and Pharrell Williams' famed R&B croon, I guess it's been determined the electro-pop treat is nearly impossibly for anyone to dislike.

And, if for some reason you don't like it - you know, it's too funky or something (?) - then you now have the  refuge of French duo Daughter's somber cover of the upbeat hit, which they recorded in BBC Radio 1's lounge just a few days ago. Darker instruments, a scattered beat and Elena Tonra's shaky songbird vocals are what give this slowed-down cover its substance - and I think it's safe to say that not only will this be the first of many covers of this wild dance floor favourite, but it will probably be one of the best, too.
