Divino Niño is an American-Colombian rock band based in Chicago, Illinois, formed in 2013. The band consists of Camilo Medina (vocals, guitar), Javier Forero (vocals, bass ), Guillermo Rodriguez-Torres (guitar, vocals), and Pierce Codina (drums, percussion). Their music has been characterized as surreal, psychedelic, dream-pop and part of the growing Latino music scene
The group is characterized by their bi-lingual lyrics and often genre-bending songs that pay homage to the ’60s an ’70s. Pitchfork describes their work as a “squiggly, retro-futurist approach [that] borrows freely but selectively from among a vast pop-rock songbook, the psychedelic explorations of the past, and more recent internet subgenres.”
WBEZ said of their debut album Foam “Their sound brings to mind both sun-drenched beaches and frigid urban alleyways. That musical mix makes perfect sense when you understand the band’s journey from Bogota, Colombia to Miami to Chicago.”
During the pandemic of 2020 the band stopped meeting in person for long stretches of time and began exploring sampling and beat making. The writing of Last Spa on Earth became a major departure from their acoustic sound exploring Reggaeton sub-genres, J-Dilla like beats, house, and drum & bass.
