No Joy Enlist Visual Artist Ashley Diabo for "Four" Video
The new track appears on their upcoming 'Motherhood' album
Directed by Jodi Heartz, the video sees Kahnawake-based Kanienʼkehá꞉ka (Mohawk) visual artist Ashley Diabo at her home donning elaborate makeup, hanging out with animals and swimming in an above ground pool. As the group's Jesamine White-Gluz explained in a statement, the video is meant to "inspire all to embrace the love and inspiration of their home the way Ashley reminds us every day."
Of the clip, White-Gluz added: "She has a special gift to make the everyday more and better and magical."
In addition to the new video, the band are also encouraging viewers to donate to a number of different Indigenous charities, including Canadian Roots Exchange, Native Women's Association of Canada, True North Aid and the Unist'ot'en Camp.
Motherhood arrives on August 21 via Hand Drawn Dracula/Joyful Noise. The forthcoming record marks the band's first since 2015's More Faithful. Previously, No Joy had shared "Birthmark" and "Nothing Will Hurt."
