    The Joy Mills Band spent a quiet winter completing their ep, Coming Up, their fourth release. Recorded in a former veterinary hospital (now a writing & music studio), the songs (four originals and one cover) reflect a longing to connect with nature and each other outside the technological hum of modern day, such as on the title track:

    You've been hanging out in my mind to ease the burden
    Just passing by my window then gone again

    I love when the robin sings, sweet things through an open door
    How I've been waiting for these songs in the dawn
    I live every loving day, strange things through an open door
    How long we've been waiting for these songs in the dawn

lyrics

Didn't always need to turn the key, when all of this could hide in bliss
Turning over stones can't look away
It's like everybody knows, they just won't say

Didn't always hear the undertones, pulled over me another land
Ever since the day I met you, when I look around, all I see
Hey hey, what love is all around

(tom)
Came into this world alone
Fell into a broken home
Left when I was young, to the streets
Looking for a sign along the way

Now and then you got to wonder
What's to come, could it be
Living like we've got tunnel vision
Leaving out periphery
Hey hey, what love is all around

(joy)
If you get lost, I will find you
If you get lost in the fray
If you get lost I'll be your refuge
If you get lost along the way

For many years I have loved you
For many more could it be
Forgive me for my tunnel vision
If I could look around, what I'd see
Hey hey, what love is all around


I've got you under the same light
