Peace and Mystery Jets teamed up to cover Daft Punk's Number One single 'Get Lucky' last night (May 3) at their show in Birthdays, London.

Members of both bands took to the stage for a surprise rendition of the track following a 50-minute set from the headliners, to wrap up the final night of Peace's four day residency at the Dalston venue.

Peace bassist Sam Koisser and Mystery Jets frontman Blaine Harrison both donned 3D Daft Punk masks for the cover, with Peace frontman Harry Koisser singing Pharrell Williams' vocal for the track as the audience danced and sung along throughout.

Earlier in the night, Mystery Jets played a surprise 30 minute support slot, having been billed as 'secret guests' until they took to the stage. Playing a 'Radlands'-heavy set including the likes of opener 'Someone Purer', 'Hail Bop' and 'Greatest Hits', they then closed with fan favourite 'Alice Springs' before exiting to huge applause.

Peace then took to the stage 40 minutes later than billed to round off their residency at the venue, which began on Tuesday (April 30). Kicking off with 'Delicious' and playing the majority of recent Top 20 debut album 'In Love', the Birmingham quartet got the crowd jumping throughout and, lengthy EP track '1998 (Delicious)', creating a full circle pit.

Peace then finished with 'California Daze' and early single 'Bloodshake', before engaging the crowd in an impromptu Q&A session whilst the stage was reset for their cover.

Following the gig the crowd were in high spirits, with Peace fan Holly, 25 from London, saying that she'd "seen them on Wednesday too, but tonight was even better. The Daft Punk cover was sick." Andrew, 19 from Chelmsford, also added that he was "really pleased that it was Mystery Jets supporting. Everyone thought it would be Swim Deep so it's cool that it was a surprise".

'Waste Of Paint'
'Float Forever'
