The KXT Local Show: House of Figs, Tela Bella, Alex O’aiza

The seasons are changing (I think), and lucky for us, Grand Prairie artist Ellen Once Again brought us her new song, “Sunshine Vibes.” Denton band Tela Bella sent in their new track and Fort Worth group House of Figs made its KXT debut with the dream pop tune “Siren.” We also listened back to the high-energy “Always There” from the Reveler’s Hall Band, the super-charged “Shark Attack” from Phantomelo, and Marc Musso‘s “Anxiety” – a song he wrote while he was having an actual panic attack.

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


House of Figs

The alt-pop band is led by Bethany Franco, who sings, writes and produces for the trio. You can almost get lost in the dreamy new song “Siren.”

Tela Bella

The Denton duo is back with their second release – the funky “Evaporate.”

Alex O’aiza

The Grand Prairie artist has been hard at work and he’s got a brand new video to show for it. The collaboration with Coffee Pot Films finds O’aiza flexing his acting (and dancing!) skills. KXT writer Waffles caught up with O’aiza at Ruins to talk about it.
