Lyrics from Sex CityFormed in 2005, Australian electro pop indie band, Van She, is comprised of Michael Di Francesco (synth), Tomek Archer (drums), Nick Routledge (vocals/guitar) and Matt Van Schie (bass). Each member originally responded to an ad in Sydney’s Drum Magazine and arrived at an audition for a vocalist for a doom metal band, which ended up being a scam. The foursome’s chance meeting resulted in the creation of Van She, derived from bassist Matt Van Schie’s last name. Van She signed to Modular Recordings in 2006 and released a hyped self-titled EP that same year. The band’s sophomore release, Idea of Happiness, was released in July 2012. The album was produced and recorded in Kings Cross, Sydney, and mixed in Los Angeles with Tony Hoffer (Air, Phoenix, M83).
