VAN SHE – IDEA OF HAPPINESS (Electro – Australia)

Van She

Van She have finally announced the release of their long awaited sophomore record, Idea Of Happiness. The album will be out internationally next July via Modular Recordings but you can already take a listen to the first cut and title track below to get a taste of things to come.

Recorded, engineered and produced by the band themselves in Kings Cross, Sydney and mixed in Los Angeles with Tony Hoffer (the perfect man for the job with a resume that includes work with Beck, Air, Phoenix and M83), the final result is so uplifting it’s practically levitational.

Be sure to be the first in the world to hear live the new material as Van She take to the road next month for a string of shows across Australia. Bonus track:

FENECH SOLER – DEMONS (Electro/Pop – UK)

Fenech Soler

UK-based electro outfit Fenech Soler are known to many dancefloor lovers for their punchy synthpop tunes and they are back again with a gorgeous new single: “Demons”. In the same vein as their previous singles, “Demons” is a ball of energy, packed with killer melodies and hooks, massive synths and an irresistibly dancey beat.

But wait, it gets better! The track has been remixed by none other than French electro rising star Yuksek, who has produced two different versions. And there are eight (8!) more remixes from the likes of Sigma, Wideboys, Drums of Death, Jokers Of The Scene, Plump DJs and Alan Wilkis…

“Demons” is taken off Fenech Soler’s self titled debut album, released in September 2010 on B-Unique (home to Kaiser Chief, Bedouin Soundclash and Har Mar Superstar amongst others). On their explosive debut LP, Ross Duffy, Ben Duffy, Daniel Soler and Andrew Lindsay show their skills as songwriters and beatmakers. They know how to intertwine lush synth melodies and explosions of rhythms to create glistening pop songs.

As a bonus, listen to “Lies” remixed by fellow Englishman Grum
