No Joy are mainly Jasamine White-Gluza and Laura Lloyd, two charismatic blondes with the visage of Hollywood stars, which love shoegaze, thus wildly distorted guitar tones, solid sound overexcited and singing, which is in the vibrating rumble almost lost. They originally performed as a duo, but at the Alternativa festival they will performe as a quartet. No Joy during their short career performed at the respected festival Primavera Sound in Barcelona, played with such a musicians as Vivian Girls, Surfer Blood, Best Coast or guitarist Marnie Stern…
