about

XOXOK Chapel Hill, North Carolina

The music of XOXOK is conceived on the fretboard, cradled in headphones, and cultivated at the microphone. The guitar and vocal influences are far-flung, but cohesive (J. Buckley, J. Frusciante, F. Ocean, J. Blake).

Often armed with just an electric guitar, the live performance is a model of intimacy and presence - a combination of soulful, smooth, and soft tunes laced with unabashed emotion.

Track Name: Worthy
Today, I was higher than the highway
I waited for that moment but it never came
The cars zoom by below me, and I start to sway

The air between my feet and the ground
I'm still afraid to fall even though fences surround me
I'm afraid I'll lose it all and you'll be alright without me

Somehow, your eyes are louder than your mouth
I'll ask what you have to tell me, though I know it will hurt me
I don't need you to love me, I just want to be worthy

I don't need you to love me, I just want to be worthy
I don't need you to love me, I just want to be worthy
Track Name: Pretend
I wish that you'd pretend
If we keep on driving west, this day won't end
I wish you'd make believe
We both know it's not real, so just indulge me
Help me build this lie
I'm an arson, so help me build this fire

I'm holding on too tight
Do stolen moments make a life
It's best I run away
I'll never know what you mean to me if I stay
I hide my love in plain sight
I know your friends have told you, and your friends are all right

I mean, they're great; they're all mine, too
But just one day alone, I promise would not kill you
I think I married far too many, far too soon
Can't lose what I don't have, but I'm afraid to lose you

Six months is too much time
I walk away from nines
In hopes of my ten
But 'til then, I'll just pretend
Track Name: Flaws
I stole a moment in time with you
And all along, that moment was mine, yes it's true
I won't give it back, no I won't give it back

Won't you burn me alive, and you freeze me to death
With your bright brown eyes and your sweet, warm breath
And nobody's got it all, but you've got the perfect flaws

And now it's clear what I've been trying not to see
And it's me who I've been trying not to be
And it's you who I've been trying not to see
I don't want you to fall in love with me

I'm not what you need
