Van She

are a Sydney four-piece who bridge the musical gap between boldly adventurous shoegaze and danceable glint disco. The band are known to step off the stage and into the booth, twiddling knobs under their DJ guise of Van She Tech and remixing tracks by the likes of Daft Punk, Ladyhawke and Feist.
