The KXT Local Show: Julian King, Remy Reilly, Lorelei K, Cure For Paranoia

The seasons are changing and that means we’re getting in new, upbeat music for Spring. This week we debuted new songs from alt-rock band Bad Lives, indie songstress Remy Reilly, and dream pop sensation Lorelei K. Zeke Forever sent in the dance track “OPEN!” from Denton, and we had some “Lavender Lemonade” with hip hop ensemble Cure For Paranoia. We even had a Local Show debut this week: Dallas-based Afrobeats artist Julian King, with “TikTok Girl.”

Check out the full playlist after the highlights and if you are an artist from North Texas, be sure to submit your music here.

Julian King

King is originally from Zimbabwe and now calls Dallas home. Produced by Jordache Grant and Jah Born, “TikTok Girl” is guaranteed to get you moving. The title of the song makes a lot of sense as King has quite the following on the social platform.


Remy Reilly

Reilly and her powerhouse voice are back with “What Do Ya Know” – an upbeat celebration of the early stages of a new romance.

Lorelei K

Fronted by Dahlia Knowles, Lorelei K delivers another dreamy hit in “I Want To Be Alone.” Catch the dream pop band at the Dallas Pride Festival this year playing the Main Festival Stage on June 3rd.


Cure For Paranoia

“Lavender Lemonade” is the first radio offering from the ensemble’s new full-length album Center Of The Maze (which I’ve had on repeat since it came out!). The group has been busy since the album release- check out their Tiny Desk submission!
