No Joy 's new EP, Can My Daughter See Me From Heaven, is out today and features songs from 2020's Motherhood that have been radically reworked in an orchestral style (plus a cover of Deftones' "Teenager"). The EP features experimental harpist Nailah Hunter, Montreal cellist and performance artist Ouri, drummer Sarah Tawer, and french horn player and classically trained opera singer Brandi Sidoryk. You can stream the whole EP below now.
We talked with No Joy's Jasamine White-Gluz about the inspirations behind Motherhood last year, so we wanted to do the same for the new EP. Influences this time include Portishead's Roseland live album, The Eurythmics (via DTV), Korn Unplugged, and more. Check out Jasamine's list, complete with commentary, below.
