Van She is Australia's latest addition to the new New Wave. With thick, chugging bass lines, all kinds of synths, and easy, melodic falsettos, the Sydney band is reminiscent of everyone from Duran Duran on the one hand to Jackson Browne on the way distant other. Of the five songs on this EP, the standout is clearly "Kelly," in the chorus of which pleading vocals float over burbling and shimmering keyboards. "Sex City" is the slightly darker side of the same coin, retro in a minor key. The EP also includes the video of "Kelly."
