Patsy Hangdog

A 13 track ambient album (59m 23s) — released July 31st 2020 on Presto!?

The elusive enfant prodige from Vladivostok is back with the much-awaited follow up to his 2019 debut. The thirteen new minimalistic compositions of Patsy Hangdog radically defy narratives: similarly to a series of still lifes, they represent Ivan's interiority and its fluctuations of energy, glee and value. In this internal room, Regular Citizen grab hold of a style until it's stripped of its meaning, while his melodies walk with him in a circle until they find one. In our view, his compositional attitude is no solipsism. Rather an exercise in truthfulness, reminding us of the real scope of musical expression.

Grown up on the coast of the Pacific Ocean, in the russian port city of Nakhodka, east of Vladivostok, Ivan Olegovich aka Regular Citizen has been describing his life through music since his early childhood, when his father bought him an old piano. His unique sensitivity has been refined through his youth - playing drums in punk bands and city parades, working as a DJ and studio engineer at the local Radio. His attitude toward composition is an exercise of concentration, or as he describes: "a movement towars a inner target."
