about

"Half Home is the song that was developed from my old Dictaphone recordings. As I remember, I just did it on my way somewhere in the subway of Kyiv around 2016-2017. It is definitely related to the loss of Crimea my homeland, but it has an optimistic note in it, cause when you lose something you always find something else, it works both ways and in the end, you should recognize it and be grateful to your life and destiny. I think that a big amount of people in our world can relate to the lyrics of this song and dive into an inner feeling of solitude for a moment, but then get back to the reality of your daily life. It’s a feeling of losing the place where you belong, but starting a new life and looking for a better future. Sound-wise, it's a grooving rhythm full of movement with a catchy melody on top"
Anton Pushkar

lyrics

Love’n’Joy - Half Home

(By Anton Pushkar)

City moves fast, you follow the pace
It’s a green light, green light you always chase
City moves fast, you follow its grace
Trying to catch a living loving hidden on its ways
City moves fast, you're locked in your hood
Same as you were, as you are, as you would
City moves fast, you’re down-to-the-wire
Moments ahead you're a spark in its fire

Here I’m only half home
the other half I miss so

Here I’m only half home
the other half won't let go

How to feel like half home
half of you must well know

Here I’m only half home
But I don’t feel alone

City moves fast, you follow the pace
It’s a green light, green light you always chase
City moves fast, you follow its grace
Trying to catch a living loving hidden in its ways
City moves fast, you're locked in your hood
Same as you were, as you are, as you would
City moves fast, you’re down-to-the-wire
Moments ahead you're a spark on its fire

Here I’m only half home
the other half I miss so

How to feel like half home
half of you must well know

Here I’m only half home
But here I found my true love

Oh, oh no, no
Where is my love oh, oh
I can find her no more, oh
She must be moving too fast

City moves fast, you follow the pace
It’s a green light, green light you chase
City moves fast, you follow its grace
Trying to catch a living loving hidden on its ways
City moves fast, you're locked in your hood
Same as you were, as you are, as you would
City moves fast, you're down-to-the-wire
Late in the night, you’ll burn like a spark on its fire

Love'n'Joy Kyiv, Ukraine

The Kyiv-based Ukrainian band Love’n’Joy announces the release of their 2nd LP titled “Half Home”.

The chosen title “Half Home” turned out to be a kind of prophecy. The recording and mixing of the album was completed on February 21 in Kyiv at the CrimyRec studio, exactly 3 days before the start of the full-scale russian invasion of Ukraine.
