The Soft Moon debuts video for "Like A Father"
The soft Moon "Like A father"

Following the release of his latest album ‘Criminal’ earlier this year via Sacred Bones, The Soft Moon, aka Luis Vasquez, has shared a haunting new music video for “Like A Father” along with newly added European live dates for this summer which will take place following two London shows at Meltdown Festival this June.

Speaking about the track, Vasquez explains “”Like a Father” is the result of a life long internalization in regards to the abandonment of my father.”

‘Criminal’ is a confessional work. Through the stark lens of shame and guilt that has followed Luis Vasquez since a violent childhood growing up within the humming ambient sprawl of 80s Mojave Desert, here he documents the gut-wrenching sound of going to war with himself. Battling with his own sanity, self-hatred, insecurity, self-entitlement and grappling with the risk of these things transforming him into a person he despises, Vasquez has laid his feelings bare with this: his confession and most self-reflective work to date.
