The unexpected return to music making, although unintended, yielded songs, which are anything but trivial. The first of the three songs, “Crocuses,” portrays the stark beauty of an unlikely pairing -- snow on the first flowers of spring -- followed by a verse about light coming into the room. The songs on this EP reflect her longing to exist in places that offer silence and solitude, and room for contemplation and perspective. They are the prelude to a full-length release, in the works for 2019, which Mullins plans to “slow release” to fans through a soon-to-be-announced “Song of the Month” club. But for now, she offers us Three Songs, a brief but expansive reintroduction to her lush yet minimalistic songs, and an enticing preview of a dozen more on the way.
