Footnote with Creature in The Spiral - An Interview

Raul Gonzales é responsável por inserir mais beleza no universo sonhador do submundo dos bons sons através de seu alter ego Creature on the Spiral.

"Anodyne" o primeiro single lançado em Fevereiro já deixava explícito o caminho que o CITS seguiria, depois vieram "Spill" e a última "Footnote" ainda mais sonhadora que suas antecessoras. 

Mas o mundo dos sonhos do CITS pode ser cintilante "Footnote" mas, ao mesmo tempo pode soar densa e angustiante, tudo vai depender do estado de espírito de seu criador.

Para ficar de olhos e ouvidos atentos.
