No Joy: Hawaii [NSFW Video]

no-joy-band

As always when NSFW appears in the headline, an immediate disclaimer noting that this video is not safe for work must apply. At least, that’s a phrase to make me feel more comfortable. Along the same lines, if you’re under 18, turn away now as your parents will not likely enjoy you watching this video. No Joy. Fitting name for the band of the moment then, but really, is it? I personally don’t feel full frontal, which you’ll see from sexes that begin with the letters M and F, is a very big deal. Not when you can say “shit” on television and when a woman named Carol can take a pickaxe to the head of her soon to reanimate husband’s head (like they did in the most recent episode of The Walking Dead). I digress. No Joy is anything but; this is a band filled with awesomeness, nudity or not.

In fact, you barely notice the nudity. This video for No Joy’s “Hawaii” is packed with angled focus, with dirt and paint and sludge. And the raucous percussion and ferocious guitars can drown out your very existence. Very artfully composed, “Hawaii” is raw and ripe with youth and emotion. And though the song is almost entirely indecipherable in terms of the lyrics within, it follows suit. Director SALAZAR does an exceptional job conveying this in detail. It’s beautiful.
