The KXT Local Show: Silver Skylarks, Siblings, Alex O’aiza

The local show inbox was packed full this week! We got the debut single from Dallas funk and soul duo Silver Skylarks, Grand Prairie artist Alex O’aiza sent in his new summer jam, and we checked out new music from Denton’s Lovers&Lunatics. We also heard De Oro, the new project from Brave Little Howl lead singer Billy Hale.

You’ll see the full playlist after the highlights, and if you are an artist from North Texas, don’t forget to submit your songs.


Silver Skylarks

The new project from Danny Balis and Jeff “Skin” Wade is so full of funky goodness, it completely blew me – and all the other KXT DJs – away when we heard the debut single “Power Moves.” The song features Adrian Quesada from the Black Pumas on guitar, hip hop pioneer Kool G Rap, and Austin duo US! Watch for the album, The Number One Set And Sound, to drop in May.

Warning- this song contains lyrics some might find offensive.



The members of this Dallas group are actual siblings named Quinn and Iko. They say that decades of petty arguments have led to a pretty fast songwriting experience. They submitted their laid back and jazzy song “Handsome But Pitiful” to this year’s NPR Tiny Desk Contest.


Alex O’aiza

O’aiza’s new song captures the essence of a head-over-heels fling and is inspired by the tropical fruit guava (which is guayaba in Spanish.) This one reached us right in time to play on repeat this summer.
