Here comes the second single from Van She‘s highly anticipated new album Idea of Happiness, to be released on July 6th in Australia (and a few days later in Europe and the US) via Sydney-based electro powerhouse Modular Recordings.

With their usual synth pop swagger, Van She deliver a romantic paean to an idyllic island in dreams, the perfect tune to welcome the first warm days of summer. “Jamaica” takes the sound of the band’s previous single “Idea Of Happiness” out to the end of the jetty and kicks if off the edge into the tropical depths.

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:

DRAGONETTE – RIGHT WOMAN (ElectroPop – Canada)

Canadian new wave revivalists Dragonette unveil their new track “The Right Woman”, the first taste of their highly awaited third album. It is featured on Diane von Furstenberg’s Women’s Day compilation Proud to be Woman Vol. 3 and all proceeds will go to an organization dedicated to empowering women worldwide.

Produced in collaboration with Felix Bloxson, who usually works under the Plastic Plates moniker, “The Right Woman” is Dragonette’s first original new track since the summer of 2010 (Our Summer/Volcano single). With its nice combination of punchy beats, glittering synths and sultry vocals, this song proves Dragonette are back in good form!

To celebrate this release, here’s a couple of Dragonette goodies: the first track is the band’s classic hit “I Get Around” remixed by Midnight Juggernauts, the second is a pumped up remix of “Pick Up The Phone” by Van She‘s own Michael DiFrancesco.
