Circles

Description

August 1 2014 was the official release-date for unexpected online single release, entitled “Circles”. This single was originally released as an upbeat danceable track on the “Revival” album in 2003 but this time the Cowboys have taken a total turn transforming this dancefloor smasher into an atmosperhic piano – meets – violin – ballad.

Guest starring on this release is the folk-music multitalent Anton Teljebäck who has given the track a touch of the northern folk-soul with beautiful lead violin and a whole bunch of backing orchestration that together with the melodical piano from VigilAnte and the acoustic bass of Atreyo form the soundscape that really brings the Cowboys back to the roots.

As “side 2” you find a Live recording of the same track, from open air concert in Storuman in June, during Inlandsbanefestivalen. It was during this tour that the new version of “Circles” formed, inspired by the landscapes and that special -youmustexperienceittobelieveit – nordic atmosphere.

Believe

Description


In 2001 Dark Side Cowboys under the short name DSC delivered “Believe”, a brand new album containing 11 new songs, all with the improved but still unique DSC-soundscape. Catchy tunes were mixed with heavy danceable beats, brutal guitars and massive electronic soundscapes.

On the “Believe” album you can find dark and powerful songs like “Lost Generation”, the titletrack “Believe” and the atmospheric “Subzero” among others. This is without a doubt the most popular DSC-album from their first 10 years in the business.

High

Description


This is the sequel to the Disclosure album and was released to the fans in 1999, resulting in another chart position for the Cowboys. The album takes the listener through a series of events to give answers to some of the questions put in mind during Disclosure – Episode I and to bring to surface a couple of new ones as well.

Musically DSC takes on a new type of sound with this production, containing massive guitar-riffs, soothing ballads, sweaping melodies and vocals both soft and brutal. All this mixed together in a clean production makes High a very strong album from the Dark Side.

Disclosure

Description


Disclosure is the second album from Dark Side Cowboys, presenting a new and improved soundscape. This album is the first episode of a futuristic whodunit that might answer many questions about what DSC have been up to during the years… The music on this album is somewhat moodier and darker than before but still with the unexpected twists of their past releases.

Mick Mercer (journalist and author of the book: Hex Files) descibed “Autumn Song” the following way: “…they produce an impressingly lavish lather and when they get lively on the chorus, whole buildings fall apart.” The Disclosure-story takes the listener far away to the city of Acropolis to seal the fate of an crime-fighting agent and his companions in the battle for their lifes.

The Apocryphal

Description


This album is probably what you could call the final battle with the old Cowboys… One can also look upon it as a summary of what Dark Side Cowboys have been doing during their first three years of existance, before the album was released. The Apocryphal is made like the soundtrack to a movie, dealing with the theme of “abuse of messages” and it strives to reach other depths within the listener than the previous release Pure Hearts EP. No singles were released from this album but some years after its appearance, DSC chose to include “Tears For You” as a built in single on the extended CDM Most. Hardcore Cowboy-fans might find it interesting to know that this album has also been officially released as a cassette in Poland.

Pure Hearts EP

Description


The first official CD is the Pure Hearts EP. It was designed towards the always interesting topics love and friendship and carries some of the most popular songs throughout DSC’s history. It starts off with “Bloodred Moon”, a song that nowadays has become named a swedish “goth-classic”. But the song has also gained ground on the international scene, released on several compilations and also hitting top 5 on the South African alternative radio chart. Flooding on through “Red Day”, another of the Cowboys’ hits can be found in “UnfortuNataly”. This song came to be re-recorded and once again released in 1998, then in form of a single taken from the album High (1999).
