Hello alex im from argentina and in want to know about the a city on a lake álbum, because i dont understand if it is from a movie or justa an álbum. I like it very much!! Thank You and sorry about my english.
Hi Celso, thanks so much for writing!
The album is not an actual soundtrack to an existing film, but the songs were all written around a central theme. The title refers to the story of the history of Mexico City, which was built on top of the old Aztec Capitol which sat on a lake bed. The city has been dealing with the consequences of being built on a lake ever since and I thought it was an interesting metaphor for forces underneath the surface of things affecting what is on the surface. All the songs deal with this theme in some way. I classify my genre as "cinematic pop" so I'm glad you picked up on that! Thanks again for listening and keep in touch!

Where and when can we see you, Alex? Any chance there'll be more from The Paper Raincoat? It's probably my favorite CD of the last ten years! Thanks for your music... UteAlex Wong responded on 04/29/2016
