No Joy – Hare Tarot Lies

April 10, 2013

No Joy’s newest single has all the elements of modern shoegaze, complete with dreamy vocals and blurry guitar chords. On this track, the band sounds a bit like a grungier, no-nonsense version of Best Coast, which is unsurprising as the two were once on tour together. No Joy, made up of two young women and based out of Montreal, has been releasing consistent EP’s for the last few years. “Hare Tarot Lies” begins with hypnotic vocal harmonies, transitioning to a powerful verse where Laura Lloyd’s vocals are enveloped by 90’s era distorted guitar strumming. Despite this noisy exterior, the simple melodic hooks still come through to make the song perfectly appealing.
