Van She have kept their percolating, simmering electropop under wraps for a while, but the Aussies are gearing up to drop a new record called Idea of Happiness soon, and they’ve just released the record’s title track for your listening enjoyment. They picked a good time to drop the track – it fits nicely among the ranks of brooding-but-catchy, ‘80s-inspired lovelorn synthpop we’ve been hearing from artists like Grimes and Bear in Heaven this Spring. That mesmerizing chorus in particular is something special, what with those layered, droney synthesized washes and clattering percussion. Idea of Happiness, the album, drops July 10; “Idea of Happiness,” the song, is available right here for your repeat-listening pleasure.

Charlotte Aitchison’s second LP is a warhead, a sonic sour bomb that conceals sneering attitude and caustic kiss-offs beneath an initially shimmering pop sheen.
