Canadian musician and singer Jasamine White-Gluz aka No Joy announced her first full-length album in five years. Titled Motherhood, it will be released on August 21st via Joyful Noise and via Hand Drawn Dracula in Canada. You can pre-order the album here. “Birthmark” is the first excerpt.
The video was directed by Jordan “Dr Cool” Minkoff and stars Diavion Nicolas, a dancer Jasamine found on Instagram, and a goat named Piquette. Jasamine shares some details on the making of the video:
“We made this video while in quarantine. I filmed myself at home and asked my very talented friend Jordan to help build a world around the footage. Diavion had been dancing to No Joy on his instagram and I was a huge fan so reached out and asked him to choreograph a routine for this song. While in the studio, I wanted to keep the energy fun and throw any ideas at the wall. We ended up watching the video for Puff Puff Give by Hannah’s Field, pulled out some bongos, a broken clarinet, drank 12 bottles of sake and did group chants.”
