We’ve been more than a little bit in love with Daughter on these pages over the last few years, with Elena Tonra’s fragile voice never losing its beauty. I will admit, however, that I never expected to see her tracks remade in such a way that gets your foot tapping along with smooth electronic goodness, but that is exactly what Australian producer Ta-ku has done with Love.
Calling his re-imagining LOVE LOST, Ta-Ku builds Tonra’s voice and subtle guitar work into his own electronic landscape, punctuated with thumps. Oh the track is currently available as a free download.
And here’s Daughter’s original Love:
Swords have been slowly building a wave on enthusiasm as one of those new breed of acts from Ireland that are casting off the restraints of strumming and boybands and really finding their own sound.
Whether it’s Diane Anglim’s rich vocals mesmerising you on Special, or the pop licks and foot-tapping groove of All The Boys, Swords are marking themselves out as a pop band to keep an eye on.

Giant Fang – aka Glasgow’s newest music and production beacon Doug Wilson – has delivered an overwhelmingly powerful slice of euphoric pop in forthcoming single ‘Aqualung’. Released on June 23rd via Pop unLTD, the song is punctuated with swirling electronics, twinkling melodies and a rousing, stadium sized chorus – all of which are themes present in the second Giant Fang track that is available to stream online, titled ‘Kingdom’. Having already been lauded by Huw Stephens and Radio 1, it’s safe to assume that Mister Wilson has an exciting summer ahead of him, starting with the first full-band Giant Fang gig on June 20th at Glasgow’s The Art School.
