DOROTHEO was formed in 2011 in Guadalajara, Mexico by Benjamín Zárate, Otto Malgesto, Anton Cerda and Vicco González. In 2013 the band released their first self-produced, self-titled album in which they established the essential elements of their sound. In 2014 Dorotheo made their first tour of the west coast of the United States, which was repeated in 2015, 2018 and 2019, highlighting their appearances at festivals such as Viva Pomona! (Pomona, CA), Northwest Psych Fest (Seattle, WA), Flower Fest (Seattle, WA), Portland Psych Fest (Portland, OR) and Caliblablabla Mini Fest in Tijuana. Additionally they have shared the stage with Tame Impala, !!! (Chk, Chk, Chk), Kinski, Masters Musicians of Bukkake, Diminished Men, Los Dug Dugs, etc.
NADA ESCRITO is Dorotheo’s third full-length album and a reflection of the band’s evolution through the years. The project’s progressive nature and their psychedelic rock foundation has blossomed to a different sonic direction, reminiscent of hauntology music, echoing the experimental spirit of bands like Broadcast, Stereo Lab or Silver Apples, yet landing ideas from latin-american and middle-eastern music among many other influences with their signature song-writing, channeled by the production hand of Hugo Quezada (Progreso Nacional, Exploded View) and the musical possibilities enabled by the new line-up.
This album is the follow-up to their celebrated Como Es (2021), which was conceived as a duo integrated by front-man, singer and guitarist Benjamín Zárate and Otto Malgesto on drums and vocals. However, the album release tour was performed as a quintet, introducing new songs with the return of co-founder bassist-singer Anton Cerda, the inclusion of Efraín Valadez on synthesizers and the extraordinary Cynthia Estévez adding a second lead vocal persona, spacey keyboards, hypnotic wind instruments and new lyrics. Together, they created Nada Escrito, expanding their music to a completely new form.
