Montreal’s No Joy is back with another new single, “Nothing Will Hurt,” ahead of their forthcoming album Motherhood, out on Aug. 21 via Joyful Noise / Hand Drawn Dracula. The track is buoyant and full of swirling synths, and the lyric video is packed with adorable animals. “Nothing Will Hurt” follows their lead single “Birthmark.”
Frontperson Jasamine White-Gluz says of the track:
The demo of this song started as a slow Industrial burner built on samples of me screaming. Once brought into the studio, the song found new life; our mission in the studio was that no idea was too weird to try. That led to us squishing Bananas into very expensive microphones to get textured percussion noises, shoving kitchen knives into guitar necks to create a perfect slide guitar sound and adding some Primus-inspired slap bass.
