Montreal female-fronted noise pop group No Joy debuts their full length Ghost Blonde,
dropping December 7th on Mexican Summer. Not content to mine the depleted fields of
shoegaze and twee-indie sounds for inspiration, the group creates a maelstrom of
melody out of both, with a layered, fuzzy approach that incorporates big, clean riffage,
anonymous vocals hiding in the background, and a considerable churn across
memorable four-minute pop songs. There’s a great deal more structure in their work
than is found in many of their contemporaries, and their contemplative song structures
work in favor to this approach.
