T'was the month of December, two-thousand-ten,
And Exohxo was at it again
With drums and guitars, and a few violins,
piano and more, with a couple of friends,
We made an EP for the holiday season
We love playing music, and for what better reason?
So just like '09, we did holiday covers,
and this time we wrote one to go with the others!
So now here it is, without further ado
We're proud to present Exohxmas II!!

"Exohxo are a chamber-pop band you should know about; they're experts at combining orchestral strings, forceful guitars, and poppy melodies into something at once catchy and erudite." - Paul Constant, The Stranger
