Four years have passed since Sydney’s Van She set the d-floors alight with their debut album V. It’s been a long wait, but their follow-up record The Idea of Happiness is not far off.
After dropping the album’s title track (“The Idea of Happiness“) back in March, next up is the tropically-infused “Jamaica.” Recorded in their freshly assembled studio, the album was then mixed by Tony Hoffer, best known for his work with M83, Phoenix and Beck.
“Jamaica” is everything we’ve come to love about Van She. Upbeat, poppy and ridiculously catchy, it’s a dream-pop smorgasbord of glossy synth and percussion. Nick Routledge’s smooth vocals drift effortlessly in and out, perfectly embracing the care-free nature of the track.
Van She’s patient fans are celebrating, with the album ready to go and a national tour scheduled. The world is right again.
