No Joy and Sonic Boom's collaborative EP is out March 30 via Joyful Noise. (Pre-order.) It's a dream(pop) collaboration in that No Joy's shoegazy style melds so well with the former Spacemen 3 member's trancey electronic style. A real natural fit. We've got the premiere of the EP's majorly chilled-out, ethereal "Slorb." No Joy's Jasamine White-Glutz told us how the song came together:

The song was influenced by '90s trip hop such as Sneaker Pimps and was written mostly in laptop while on tour in Europe in 2016. Influences include: not sleeping because you are on a long tour and the drives are crazy, using your voice as a main instrument instead of relying on volume or guitars, and that weird time of year when its almost spring but in Montreal you never know if it might snow again.

No Joy will be on tour with Baths beginning later this month, playing Brooklyn's Elsewhere Hall on April 19 with Sasami Ashworth also on the bill (tickets).
