about

NOKO WOI sounds like a tree with roots of percussion & bass, a trunk of synths and branches of guitar strings covered by green leaves of voice.

about

NOKO WOI Barcelona, Spain

NOKO WOI means “to listen around” in Warao, a Venezuelan native language. This is what this album is about, an attempt to put together different sources of inspiration: places where we come from, places where we are, people that we’ve met, people that we are, ideas that people said, ideas that we found.

Listen around.

Track Name: Source
Look too close

Hear your source

Say the words

You thought of

-

Take some space

Clear the way

Someone else

Molds your clay

-

You’ve been brave

When the sky was grey

You stood up for

And poured your colors
Track Name: Distorted
You are sounding

A bit distorted

You got locked again

In some old worries

You have no one to blame

It’s on your shoulders

Use what is left

To burn your stories

Cause I……..

don’t need…..

more of that

The way you place your

Fastest judgments

There’s someone watching

Behind the corner

It won’t take long before

They come, get closer

Asking for what you once

Had proposed them

Cause I……..

Don’t need…..

More of that

One to many choices

Words coming out of your eyes

A chance to have you closer

Makes it better inside

-

I know I’m sounding

A bit distorted

I used too much gain

To mix our voices

There is no one to blame

It’s off your shoulders

Look outwards instead

And find new stories

‘Cause I……..

Will need…..

More of that

One to many choices

Words coming out of your eyes

A chance to have you closer

Makes it better inside
Track Name: Floating & Flying
Floating and flying, not alone

The coast is a mirror for the sun

Screaming mouth without a noise

But hearing the clapping of your cloth



My head is burning the routine’s tail

With fuel I got from my friends

Slower needles inside the clock

As I wait



Lines stretching, an umbrella above

Stopped me from falling, like a rock

Spinning around doing the dance

With eyes pleased to have the chance

Head is burning the routine’s tail

With fuel I got from my friends

Slower needles inside the clock

As I stare



Floating and flying, not alone

The coast is a mirror for the sun

Screaming mouth without a noise

But hearing the clapping of your cloth
Track Name: Playground
I’m waiting on the playground for you

Please come

And show me how it’s done

I’m a few miles away

Across the sea

Always thinking

How it would be once you are here


I want to play

I want to sing


I want to hear

Your stories

Even if they’re not real

A seed that hasn’t come out

But it’s building energy


I want to find

New places

Where you can create your scenes

I’m sure there’s nothing better

Than the feelings you will bring


Countdown waiting for you

To land, to cry, to take a breath

Bring us back to previous steps

So we remember

What simpler things are worth
Track Name: Mixed Feelings
Once you tell me you don’t care

Once I go to find my way without a blame

-

Fixed my eyes on an empty space

Had to clear the old ideas I held in vein

-

A ray of sunlight

An opening sky

To follow the seasons’ tide

No puzzle to make

No reasons to explain

No wood for the long lasting flame

-

Took a step and stood up straight

Let mixed feelings speak as they will fade away

Come back down to fill the well

Throw and anchor from what my senses felt

-

A ray of sunlight

An opening sky

To follow the seasons’ tide

No puzzle to make

No reasons to explain

No wood for the long lasting flame
Track Name: Wobbly Walk
Move around with your own pace

Don’t mind, it looks strange

-

No one can tell the difference

And broken rules can help

-

Wobbly walk and skipping legs

Forget the missing steps

-

Don’t change the rhythm,

Don’t force to make sense

The limping reason

Jumping the fake fence

I’m feeling tempted,

To make mistakes

Took down the building,

To make some space

Open crack, light through the roof

Passing a stream of rain

Branches and stem, trying to stretch

To hold the drops, to change the weight

-

I thought of them as accidents

And now they led to a better place

-

Don’t change the rhythm

Don’t force to make sense

The limping reason,

Jumping the fake fence

I’m feeling tempted,

To make mistakes

It always feels better

To do it with friends
Track Name: Swelled Head
I don’t feel I’m getting

Much out of this

-

Place a bomb inside

Your head and don’t explain

-

Watch them pay for not

Having any grace

-

It’s not safe to have them there

Watch them as they spread

-

Swelled head

-

Push the pump blow up, you will be pleased

Like leaves falling from an old oak tree

-

It seems your are not

Going to hide this time

A few of your voices

Could fill in the blank
Track Name: Sink & Float
If you can float

And I dare to sink

I’ll see above

You and the sun

-

If you can float

And I dare to sink

I’ll see above

You and the sun

-

We didn’t need

The things we aimed for

I´m a floating rock

With you and the sun

-

Find a better way

To escape, reshape

Take a break

-

If you can float

And I dare to sink

I’ll see above

You and the sun

-

Find a better way

To escape, reshape

Take a break

-

You could say you don´t care

What they are trying to change

You don’t need to lead the way

But you could play a summing thread

-

Watching down where to stand

Not again on the same mistake

Voices once were far away

Do something before they reach your bay.
