What's so good?

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.
