Dead Horse Beats is the stage name of Canadian musician, composer and singer Patrick Wade.

Described as “a groovy treasure packed with the excitement and emotion of a danceclub makeout session” by Noisey; Wade’s releases with labels in Montreal, New York and London span moods and styles from eccentric leftfield electronic to pensive R&B and rattling disco tinged dance numbers.

The Spanish word for England; ’Inglaterra’ explores the concept of a
rainy vacation through deep, spacey grooves complimenting typically
pessimistic but vulnerable lyrics. Guest appearances from LA singer
Low Leaf on vocals and harp, frequent collaborator Francis Arseneau on keyboards, and New York based saxophonist Jarryd Torff add soulful expression to DHB’s infectious, jazzy hooks.

Track Name: Inglaterra
Shame the frost from the spring
And the sea for the thunder.
All good things can never stay,
oh let me stay in your arms.

Heaven sent away the clouds
I don’t know what to say about her
In this place of flames around you
Still you softly sway surrounded

Keep the bends at bay without you
and it’s not the same without you
it’s not the same without you.
Without you -
Without you; anyone
Without you; anyone.

Shame the frost for the spring
And the sea for the thunder.
All good things can never stay,
Oh let me stay in your arms.
Track Name: Saintly
I can’t weight it, so please do make me say it,
I’ve been standing all of this down for you.
It was oh so swell to listen to you
It went oh so well, but what’s it to you?
Oh, what’s it to you?

Hey turn the lights off it’s too plain to see
And with your eyes drawn it feels like falling asleep
It’s a sane thing
Oh you’re so saintly.

Yeah don’t get side tracked, it’s what they came to see.
You rolled your eyes back with your whole body,
It’s a safe thing
But it’s fading.
Track Name: Easy Nothing
Set thee eyes on your designs,
what I say to you I say to everyone
at the time and if forces abide
all will be revealed when the moment comes

What golden glow replaced these clothes?
Seeing you again and then nothing’s wrong.
So it goes, and blessed are those
things you left behind when you carried on.

Easy nothing
Please say something slow
I just had a bad minute.
I just went and ran with it.

Wretched wind, where have you been?
Don’t you think it’s time that we both went home?
Press my skin when I let you
And think about the time before the fall of Rome

I just had a bad minute.
I just went and ran with it.

Easy nothing.
Please say something slow

You’ve been feeling so unknown
And if your feel it then just please say so
This idea of me is overblown
So it’s time for you to let it go

You’ve been feeling - well god knows.
And our idealism’s overgrown
But you know I didn’t mean it so
Will you come visit me when I grow old?

You’ve been feeling so unknown.
Oh baby you’ve been feeling so unknown.
Track Name: Home Days
Hey baby, please adjust your aim
Overthinking. Oh no.
Feel I’ve misbehaved

Oh honey please can’t you look at it my way?
It’s easy to get carried away.

Home days standing in your way
You’ve been thinking, I know.
It’s a different weight.
Track Name: JJ's Groove
Quand je-te vois
Rien est reel
Vivre dans ma rêve
Amour illegal
Track Name: Body English
Another evening gone ignoring chatter
Intervening thoughts when you know that it’s bad for you
I can’t feel your love and you know that I’d rather
Tryna keep it up mind over matter yeah.
What a healing thought: my kind of dreaming
Have you even thought: who are you appealing to?
Why even call? Belief in breathing?
When we forgot that kind of feeling too?

If these hands could talk oh what a story
But they’re clamming up when you’re before me
That’s a major flaw, another category.
Gonna fade me out, but tell me one thing before you do
Did you mean it all or were you climbing closer?
Is the feeling gone when any time now is overdue?
Did the ceiling fall with no one to toast to?
It’s a speaking role, so tell me what I’m supposed to do.
Track Name: One Brother ft. Low Leaf
I can feel the moon, the way it shines so bright.
My heart in the sky I feel your vibe.
With the sun in between us coming out to breathe
Just breathe in, breathe in.

Take you to a frequency inside
Free your mind and let your feeling ride
Let the moment guide you to the shrine
True vibration rooted in the night
I wanna take you high

Can I be your inner fire?
Cause I’m feeling something inside you
Track Name: Where Is My Other Half
Every man deserves a woman
And every woman deserves a man
So I’m about to ask
I have felt the strange vibration
And I had a lot of patience
But where is my other half?

Can’t somebody say?
Can’t somebody tell I love her.
Still I love her.
Can’t you hear my pray?
Many many ways
I love her
Still I wonder

I wonder why she left me.
Track Name: Keep Dancing Forever
This will all be over again
In time, in time, in time.
If you can’t feel it again
I’ll take over. I’ll take over.
