Now here’s an idea: create a super catchy single and then persuade those with the purse strings to fly you from Australia to Jamaica to shoot the video. My only regret is that Van She has the idea first. Damn! But they win, hands down (or up in the air, as the case may be) with this awesome track, Jamaica, off their new album, Idea of Happiness. Van She will be playing a limited run of dates in Australia this September before they head overseas for a string of shows across Europe and America. They’ll be returning home for Stereosonic and Foreshore Festivals this summer.
