Dead Horses weave together a sweet patchwork of classic and contemporary influences that span trad roots, indie-folk, and other experimental musical idioms. Freeform musicality with composed approaches. Thematically, the songs are personal, revelatory, and relatable, brimming with imaginative phrases, poetry, vulnerability, and a feeling of redemption.
