Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" has been called many things (electronic dance music's savior, EDM's demise, pure funk, completely derivative), but a soothing indie song it is not. Shoe-gazers looking to stay "up all night to get lucky," however, can find solace in Daughter's new cover, a breathy, minimalist take that sounds like one of best xx songs never recorded.
Daughter recorded the song for BBC Radio and premiered it on Huw Stephen's Live Lounge on Radio One. The viral hit comes at a good time for the group, whose debut album hits stores Tuesday. Rolling Stone is streaming the album in advance of its release.
The French robots, meanwhile, seem to have also struck gold: "Get Lucky," which features Pharrell Williams' vocals and Nile Rodgers, has reached No. 1 on the U.K. singles chart, a first for Daft Punk.
The Daughter cover is available for free download on this Swedish music blog.
