After the release of their debut “I Never Lied About Being In Love” in 2014, Them Coulee Boys toured tirelessly until it came time to record their first professional studio effort in the winter months of 2016. After 7 days at Pine Hollow Audio outside of Eau Claire, WI the new record “Dancing In The Dim Light” was born. With new songs came new sounds, as evidenced by the use of electric banjo, drums, and piano. Engineer Evan Middlesworth also contributed pedal steel and baritone guitar, while Eve Wilczewski (Seasaw) added violin. It’s a grander sound, while still keeping the rawness of a live setting Them Coulee Boys are known for. Lyrically, “Dancing In The Dim Light” deals with the duality of life, in which we often find the lows in our highs, but also see the light in the dark. Being weak or vulnerable isn’t what defines you. It’s about how you dance when the lights aren’t shining like they need to. “Dancing In The Dim Light” is set to be released June 2016 with a tour to follow.

S. Staff -
I worked a long time for your heart. The sooner I quit the later I start to realize that you’re almost gone. Some other guy came to take it all. Take those records that I bought you off your shelf. Keep the letters that I wrote all to yourself. Take the little bit of me that you got left, throw it in fire to burn with all the rest. And if got to take her from me, would you take her easy? You used to wear me on your sleeve then roll them on up when it’s time to leave. You held me close when the clouds rolled in, but when the sun shined you’d be gone again. Take that Bible that I bought you off your shelf. Keep the songs I wrote for you all to yourself. Take the little bit of me that you got left throw it in the fire to burn with all the rest. And if you got to take her from me, would you take her easy? And I know that it gets hard to sing along, but it gets harder when you’re gone.
