Teddy and the Rough Riders Release New Single ‘Dance Floor Blues’

Teddy and the Rough Riders Explore The Sins Of Honky Tonk Romance In New Single 'Dance Floor Blues'

“‘Dance Floor Blues’ is exactly what it sounds like…becoming dangerously intoxicated with another person,” say Nashville-bred country-rockers Teddy and the Rough Riders of their pedal steel and phase-shifter-laden new single.

With a groove that feels as if it was pulled straight from a Flying Burrito Brothers album and chorus vocal harmonies that would make Bryan Wilson proud, ‘Dance Floor Blues’ showcases all of the aspects of Teddy and the Rough Riders’ sound; a groovy, spacey affair that’s landed the group critical acclaim.

This was their first big studio effort with a producer, engineer, and session players, and the goal of an audible fidelity change. After narrowing down their best demos, the band recruited Margo Price to produce because of her creative vision and “let’s roll” Neil Young-inspired recording philosophy. They rented out Club Roar, brought in engineer-producer Jake Davis and spent a few days holed up in the studio to capture the magic of the session.

What resulted from those three days of close collaboration in the studio on the final version of the album, mixed by Davis and mastered by John Baldwin, is some of the most original country rock to come from Nashville in a while

‘Dance Floor Blues’ is the third track released from Teddy and the Rough Riders’ Margo Price-produced self-titled album released on July 1st via Appalachia Record Co and available for pre-order  now via Rough Trade.com
