No Joy, the project of Jasamine White-Gluz, returns with its first full-length album in five years, Motherhood, which is set for release on Aug. 21 via Joyful Noise/Hand Drawn Dracula – you can pre-order the album here. The first single is “Birthmark” which is out today – watch the music video below. 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.”
