Raptors & Remnants

Creating music is about baring your soul, leaving you exposed and revealing your deepest, darkest secrets, wildest dreams and most agonising heartbreaks. For Nicolas González, 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 post-hardcore band Climate Control, González has already established himself as a noteworthy lyricist and performer in the South African alternative music scene. Now, however, he is charting into different musical territories to showcase his versatility and desire to grow as a musician.

“That is the beauty about Raptors & Remnants. It’s real, it’s raw, it’s impulsive, and it’s just so damn beautiful.” – Brooklyn J. L'Amoureux, The Fuss

“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,” González says. “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 and truly evolve as an artist.”

Described as raw, impulsive and beautiful, Raptors & Remnants is about the discovery and sincerity of human emotion. With every song release and performance, González invites you to gather around and witness this emotional journey together with him. He hopes that you’ll stick around for awhile and listen.
