Indie88 Premiere: Patient Hands share mystical new track ‘I Shaved My Father’s Face’

His debut album 'Stoic' is set for release on February 15

Patient Hands, the solo-project of Montreal based ambient artist Alex Stooshinoff, has just shared “I Shaved My Father’s Face.”

The track opens with an atmospheric, almost wistful melody as Stooshinoff softly hums atop a smooth, gentle instrumental. Slowly, the tune, which revolves around a son shaving his father’s face in a delicate moment, builds into a powerful, revitalizing, booming instrumental that will envelop your attention as you listen along.

Check out “I Shaved My Father’s Face” below.

“The song is sincere yet self-satirical, and in a way it is autobiographical,” Stooshinoff explains. “‘I Shaved My Father’s Face’ refers to a moment wherein my father had broken his neck, and his beard became itchy underneath his neck brace, so I undertook to shave it. It was a delicate operation, and an emotional moment that stuck with me.”

Patient Hands’ debut album Stoic revolves around a yearlong sickness and the peculiar, yet mystical experience accompanying it. The record is set for release on February 15th, 2019, and you can check out the tracklist below.
