Happy Monday Lovely People.

Hope you’ve all had a good weekend despite the rain – man did it pour on Saturday and Sunday. It didn’t stop where we were for the majority of the weekend but we did manage to fit in a walk and ice cream in between showers – yeah I know……..ice cream in this weather isn’t the best idea but we’re not quite ready to let go of summer just yet. In denial!

We have an absolute gem of an alternative first dance love song for you today. I am in love with it. It is beautiful and I can’t wait for you to all hear it if you’ve not done already.

You know when you find a track that stops you in your tracks and gives you gooses bumps? Well indie-folk band Daughter’s version of Daft Punk’s Get Lucky does just that and more.

It’s very difficult for an artist to cover such a famous and, lets be honest, slightly overplayed song (sorry Daft Punk – we still love it though!) and make it completely their own but Daughter has managed to transform those funky 70’s disco bass lines to something that’s soft, atmospheric, and hauntingly beautiful. In fact, it sounds like a brand new song.

So if you are looking for a song that will cast over a love spell on you and your guests on your wedding day then Daughter’s Get Lucky could be the perfect love song for you.


Daughter are made up of singer Elena Tonra, guitarist Igor Haefeli and drummer Remi Aguilella. Their debut album ‘If You Leave’ is available now – I’ve just brought mine!
