Creating music is about baring your soul, leaving you exposed and revealing your deepest, darkest secrets, wildest dreams and most agonising heartbreaks. For Nicolas Gonzalez, Raptors & Remnants is exactly just that – it is an outlet for him to share his stories of love, death and everything in between.
As the lead vocalist and guitarist of Johannesburg-based alternative rock band Climate Control, Gonzalez has already established himself as a noteworthy lyricist and performer in the South African alternative music scene. He is charting into different musical territories to showcase his versatility and desire to grow as a musician.
“Raptors & Remnants, as a concept, has been going on from the moment that I picked up a guitar. I always knew that I wanted to release music on my own, as well as with my friends in other projects. I think that doing something, which is solely my own, can be liberating, cathartic and deeply personal. I see it as an additional avenue for me to explore, experiment and evolve as an artist.” Nicolas Gonzalez
Described as raw, impulsive and beautiful by The Fuss Raptors & Remnants is about the discovery and sincerity of human emotion. With every song release and performance, Gonzalez invites you to gather around and witness this emotional journey together with him. He hopes that you’ll stick around for a while and listen.
