about

The harmonies in this song are meant to sound like car horns before a crash, and to reflect certain personality types that always set off alarms. Such are the sticky situations, they can feel skin tite. - Gio

lyrics

Skin Tite
by Giovanna Sgarlata


What’s the matter your skin too Tite?
Sticky situation makes
Skin Tite

The last bash
The mad dash
The last clash
You’ll have with me

Seems like your troubles are many
Though you feel you're telling
Some truth
Blown-up out of proportion
The things that started so smooth

You said you like things to go easy
Though you feel you're selling
Some truth
You're the solemn pretender
Strength with each shot of Vermouth

(Chorus)

The love you cherish is empty
Though you think you're selling
Some truth
Fragile piece of deception
The trick is playin’ the fool
(and babe I’m a fool)

(Chorus)

What’s the matter your skin too Tite?
Sticky situation makes
Skin Tite
Come a little closer
Just come a little closer

kokokutheband New York, New York

At the height of NYC's mid-80s "fast-folk" club scene alongside artists like Suzanne Vega, acoustic trio kokoku arrived with sparkling harmonies and tight rhythms .

Along with Tracy Chapman and Indigo Girls, kokoku emerged just as "women's music" became more mainstream. Some called kokoku the female Crosby, Stills, and Nash. Discover the origins of queer acoustic in these lost tapes from 1984.
