There song is taken from their upcoming sophomore album Tangerine Tragic, out June 3.
After their successful debut album, 2019’s Solarray (2019), The Oklahoma Kid set their focus on writing new music, with one simple goal in mind: to best themselves and give every fan something they craved. Tangerine Tragic is built on the strengths of their debut. It plays with new ideas and concepts, comes gentle as a breeze and strikes hard as a wrecking ball.
The album was recorded and produced by Jan Kerscher (Ghost City Recordings) and mixed and mastered by Lance Prenc (Alpha Wolf, Polaris, Dealer) for a full-blown production 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,” says guitarist Andreas Reinhard.
TANGERINE TRAGxIC TRACK LISTING:

The Oklahoma Kid are modern metal that bridges the gap. Since its formation in 2012, the band has consistently pushed the envelope and has established its foundation in the German metal scene. They have toured with the likes of Stick To Your Guns, Carnifex, Evergreen Terrace, and Hatebreed.
The Oklahoma Kid are no longer an insider tip and have become a force to be reckoned with — whether performing live at a festival or on the record player in the living room.

Rising from the ashes of ALAZKA and Time, The Valuator is the brand new group FLOYA. They have signed to Arising Empire.
Today, FLOYA share the video for “Wonders.” Watch it here.
The German duo consisting of Phil Bayer and Marv Wilder establish a wild blend of solid foundations alongside modern EDM elements and world music. Carving a name for themselves individually in the past as the founders and songwriters of their praised acts, Phil and Marv are now headed on a journey of their own, exploring sound aesthetics across every genre following one simple mantra: There are no limits.
With this statement engraved on their minds, FLOYA strive to create something bigger than themselves, taking you on an unforgettable adventure into their very hearts.
With “Wonders,” FLOYA are diving into the realm of self-reflection and empathy, while musically providing an uplifting and danceable hymn.
“”When I left the music industry back in 2018, I didn’t really know if I could return to what I loved doing the most, and I kind of had to let go of a dream, so to speak,” says Phil. “So when we created FLOYA and started writing this song, I wanted it to be about positivity and having the endurance to get wherever you want to be in life. ‘Wonders’ is our tribute to all the people out there fighting every day, no matter the circumstances, to live out their dreams. Keep on pushing and you will get there.”
With full production duties and additional songwriting fulfilled by Chris Kempe (Embark Audio), best known for his work in ALAZKA and Time, The Valuator and mastering being handled by Robin Schmidt (The 1975, You Me At Six, Biffy Clyro, Don Broco), FLOYA are beyond excited to show you what’s on the horizon very soon.
