Aussie electropop pioneers Van She play DJ set tonight

THEIR new record Idea of Happiness should be echoing sweetly in your head right now.

If it's not, don't worry - Van She are bringing their upbeat electropop vibe straight to you via their DJ set at the Plantation Hotel tonight. 

Since taking Australia by storm in 2008, the Sydney foursome have bathed us in synthesizers, titillated us with their almost-nude film clip starring a middle aged man in a g-string playing pool at a strange party, and made us love them with consistently high-quality tracks released across two stellar albums.

We spoke to the guys ahead of their current DJ jaunt.

Where are you right now, and why?

In the studio ... Doing a remix for Boysnoise and Mystery Jets. 

It's been four years since your debut release - what made you guys decide to wait this long?

Other projects and I guess we just took our sweet-ass time. 

How did you come together as a band?

I guess we were all living in Surry Hills (in Sydney) and going to the same gigs and just kinda decided to make music together since we all loved the same stuff. 

In the seven years you've been playing together, what's changed?

Well we lost Tomek our drummer to architecture, and we are definitely tighter as a band. 

What technical gear did you start on, and what do you use now? 

Writing and mixing is pretty much Ableton now, where it used to be Logic and (Pro)Tools. 

How did you come to the laidback sound of the new record?

A lot of weed - just kidding! I think we were just listening to a lot more laid back music and we all spent a bit of the in the Caribbean. 

If your fans wanted to give you a small gift to make life easier on tour, what would that gift be?

Sleep in... Or a cuddle.
