Keeping in check with 2013’s Wait to Pleasure, No Joy’s latest cut is awash with mighty shoegaze soundscapes and lurid vocal swirls. Kicking off with a wave of reverb and delay that crashes into your psyche at full force, the track’s spearheaded by frontwoman Jasamine White-Gluz’s breathy cry of “all I want is to be with you”.
It’s not all ethereal magic and choral delicacies here though, as No Joy switch up a gear midway through this belter, driving on a violent key change with a furious pulse. It’s no question that this would deliver a sincere punch in the live arena; a co-headline tour with Cheatahs which they just finished.
Due for release on June 8th via Mexican Summer, More Faithful is sure to satisfy your guitar rock craving just as much as a pining for shoegaze intricacies. Pre-order a copy here.
