Biography


DVCO was formed in Sao Paulo, Brazil in 2010 by Norton Bell, a musician and producer, and Diego Macedo, guitarist and journalist . After playing in local bands like Uivo (‘Howl’) and Commercial, the duo joined photographer JpAccacio and bassist Gabriel Bivanco on a project of electro-rock, characterized by a lack of drums (the group then used electronic samplers) and a mixture of different languages.

Named DVCO in honor of São Paulo’s motto ("Non Dvcor, Dvco," a Latin expression literally translated as "I am not led, I lead”), the band went on to play several shows in clubs and events in the city. The following year, DVCO recorded an eponymous EP with four original songs, receiving acclaim from the public and São Paulo's independent music media.

In 2011, the band released its EP with bigger shows, including one at the SPIndie stage at Virada Cultural (‘Cultural all-nighter’), a 24-hour outdoor mega-party featuring more than 900 acts in the city center. Furthermore, DVCO was selected for a project with new bands performed inside MIS - Museum of Image and Sound of São Paulo - with the new song "Lovely Disaster".

In 2012, the group had lineup changes, with the departure of JpAccacio output and the entrance of drummer Allan Calvo and DJ Juca Nas. In addition to the redesign, the band continuously worked for almost a year in the studio composing their debut album.

Now, DVCO returns to the stages with their 1st complete album and an innovative launch project.

TODAY!

DVCO has been working on a project that will combinee Music, Comics, Graffiti and Photography for its first album, entitled Res Furtiva. Based on their songs and the current state of São Paulo, the band created a comic book drawn by the visual artist known as “Rato.” It contains the band's lyrics and will be graffitied on walls in strategic points of the city. After, the graffiti will be released in a book of photographs by Sergio Silva, with the DVCO CD included. The project will be released simultaneously in Brazil and France by Loop Play Discos Records.

In addition, the band intends to promote the album with a traveling show through the city of São Paulo in a bus featuring the graffiti portrayed in the photography book.

Lyrics

Things you won't find on Google

Written By: Norton / Diego Macedo

Things you won’t find on Google

Your name on a desk and a red lava lamp
The touch…the girl…the Malibu’s sand
The chill down the spine just before the kiss
The same feeling when you were remiss
Well, well, the sunrise burns down São Paulo
The smell of that book you found on a tallow
You can make ends meet, make fun of me
But you know you can’t buy this kind of thing

It’s just a natural force, I keep searching on
Is your mind open-source? Oh, c’mon…

Things you won’t find on Google!
Things you won’t find on Google!

The Chinese Lhama…the car…and the locker
To play my guitar just like Ronaldo plays soccer
I try so hard to make you love me, you don’t want me to stay
If you just couldn’t care less, well, I don’t give a F.U.C.K!!!
Well, well, the shape…the colour…and the London soul…
And your favorite band playing your favorite song
Why try to sell your music on the web?
While try to do it so right, they’re just going so bad…

It’s just a natural force, You keep searching on
Is your mind open-source? Oh, c’mon…

Things you won’t find on Google!
Things you won’t find on Google!

If we can’t give you the real thing
At least we can give you anything for free

Try it again

Written By: Jp Accacio / Norton / Diego Macedo

Try Again
Now I know I was cheating a hero online
Mas no me gusta lo todo que miro desde aquí
Sul mio schermo guardare Il tuo moleskine
So wrap it all, portanto me tirem daqui!

Try it, try it again!
Your will cuts me like a knife

So let me explain
I need to be with my dogs
Você quebrou um dia, dia cinzento, mais um
Attraverso la finestra, Windows, ta tua vita passa
Não , não me impeça
Sempre me lo ricorderò

Try it, try it again!
Your will cut me like a knife / (For many times I waited for that nerve. It was pulsando em mim)

Aw, Aw, I Iive for my dreams
Don’t let them be right behind me
Aw, Aw, não abra a porta
Por esto los perros me hacen ser lo que soy
