No Joy have shared a new song, “Four,” the third single off of their forthcoming album, Motherhood, which drops August 21 via Joyful Noise/Hand Drawn Dracula. “Four” follows their previous singles “Birthmark” and “Nothing Will Hurt.”
The new song, which No Joy frontperson and principal songwriter Jasamine White-Gluz called in a statement “perhaps my favorite No Joy song ever written,” has a colorful sonic palette, starting with a buildup of shoegaze fuzz that melts into a spell of trip-hop instrumentals before jolting into a thrash metal closer.
No Joy shared a music video for the new single, following visual artist Ashley Diabo at her home. The aim of the video, White-Gluz said, is “to appreciate Ashley at home, hoping to inspire all to embrace the love and inspiration of their home the way Ashley reminds us every day.” Watch below.
