You may have thought you didn't need to hear yet another version of Daft Punk's "Get Lucky," but that was before you realized what English trio Daughter could do with the song. Last week's shares included nine great Internet remixes of the track, a chiptune reinvention for you Nintendo nostalgists out there, and a bubbly, soulful rendition by Dutch reggae posse Postmen. But London's Elena Tonra and her bandmates change the entire mood of the disco-powered single in their BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge cover. Daughter imbue the original with a little bit of the xx's dark magic and their own taut minimalism. Pharrell's words about staying up all night transform from celebratory to disconcerting — the stuff of the Weeknd's bleak binging music. The band's debut album If You Leave is due April 30 on Glassnote Records. Don't say we didn't warn you:
