Avant-garde five-piece The Oklahoma Kid have returned with their new single, “A Velvet Feel“. The new track follows previously released singles, “Pale Tongue”, “Melt Into You” and “Come Undone” and is taken from the band’s upcoming sophomore album, Tangerine Tragic, due for release on June 3rd.
Tangerine Tragic is the follow-up to the band’s successful debut album, Solarray, released in 2019. Like many other bands struck by the global pandemic, The Oklahoma Kid set their focus on writing new music in 2020 with the goal to one-up themselves on their next release. The result is Tangerine Tragic, which builds on the strengths of the band’s debut release and finds them refining their sound more than ever before.
The album was recorded and produced by Jan Kerscher (Ghost City Recordings) – mixed and mastered by Lance Prenc (Alpha Wolf, Polaris, Dealer) that gives this production its full blown punch. “We are always trying to get different influences into our music, that’s why we were looking for a producer outside our genre, to get some new input. When we first met up with Jan, we know he was a perfect match to record and produce our next album,” commented guitarist Andreas Reinhard.
