No Joy have released a new video for “Everything New” a song off their new record More Faithful, which comes out today via Mexican Summer. The clip was shot in Los Angeles and features cameos from members of Best Coast, Baths, King Tuff, Cold Showers, Soft Pack and Grooms.
“Everything New” documents the band at a turning point, successfully building from the vapory guitar pop for which they’re known, while adding intricacies and left turns that throw the song well off its set course.
More Faithful is No Joy’s third full-length for Mexican Summer. Throughout the album, singer / guitarist Jasamine White-Gluz, guitarist Laura Lloyd, drummer Garland Hastings, and bassist Michael Farsky (formerly of Dirty Beaches’ live band).
Where No Joy’s last album, Wait To Pleasure balanced textural difference with the freewheeling novelty of the studio environment, More Faithful documents a much more rigorous creative process and performance.
For More Faithful, No Joy worked with musician and producer Jorge Elbrecht (Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, Chairlift, Lansing-Dreiden, Violens). Recording was split between tracking at Brooklyn studio Gary’s Electric and an old farmhouse in Costa Rica.
In this rural Costa Rican setting, Elbrecht created a makeshift but nurturing studio environment where he and No Joy mixed, overdubbed, and cut vocals for 12 hours a day. Repairing themselves to an isolated environment strengthened No Joy’s regimented approach to making a record that satisfied their vision.
