BAND SHARES “MELT INTO YOU” VIDEO — WATCH
THE OKLAHOMA KID
— a modern metal experience — have announced their sophomore album Tangerine Tragic
, which arrives via Arising Empire
on June 3. Pre-order it here
While first single “Pale Tongue
” took listeners and viewers on a disturbing trip with psychedelic visuals and heavy rhythms, which were deeply influenced by early millennial industrial music and Neue Deutsche Härte,
their second single “Melt Into You
” is a cleaner look. It’s more melodic yet still bursting with heaviness. For the music video, the band again teamed up with
Pavel Trebukhin, known for his work for Imminence, Landmvrks, Annisokay, and many more.
Watch “Melt Into You” here.
Tangerine Tragic was recorded and produced by Jan Kerscher (Ghost City Recordings), and mixed and mastered by Lance Prenc (Alpha Wolf, Polaris, Dealer).
“We are always trying to get different influences into our music,” says guitarist Andreas Reinhard. “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 knew he was a perfect match to record and produce our next album.”

The Oklahoma Kid focus on technical intricacy and energizing rhythms. Since its formation in 2012, the band has consistently pushed the envelope and has established a foundation in the German metal scene.
The Oklahoma Kid have toured with internationally renowned acts such as Stick to Your Guns, Carnifex, Evergreen Terrace, and Hatebreed. They have electrified crowds with their passionate performances.
The Oklahoma Kid’s debut album, 2019’s Solarray, didn’t adhere to genre formulas. It also displayed the band’s full sonic scope and capabilities. The song featured everything from huge, wall-of-sound arrangements to fragile melodies. The very essence of the band’s vision is not only encapsulated in sound but also in the delicate lyrics. Bleak existentialism, social commentary, and a reflection of the self were the core themes that were explored on Solarray.
