BIOGRAPHY 

Gatomidi  is  a  band  composed  by  Jimena  Quejigo  (Lyrics,  bass,  keyboard  and vocal),  Nolasco  Contreras  (Vocal  and  guitar)  and  Julián  Dolado  (Drums). Their  story  begins  in  2011  in  Valencia  recording  their  demo  “Facing  destiny”  in which    before  their  physical  edition,  Cushion R Records  (Manchester)  and  Allan obinson,  posed  their  eyes  on  the  band  who  included  it  in  the  compilation releasing  in  the  same  year  5.000  copies  of  the  song  "I  believe"  that  was distributed  in  UK  and  Ireland. During  this  period  the  band  started  a  frenetic  time  of  concerts  in  Madrid, Andalucía,  Castilla La  Mancha,  Comunidad  Valenciana,  Extremadura...  where they  were  compared  with  Sonic  Youth,  Nirvana,  Pixies  or  Joy  Division.  They started  to  get  recognition  fr om  the  press  and  in  the  competition  shows  as winers  of  the  Vinilo  Valencia  3.0,  best  band  in  the  Criminales  Music  Awards, Overbooking  Express  2011,  finalist  in  the  Circuit  Rock  Awards  2011, PlanetaDemos  2011,  Radio  Utopia  Awards,  among  other  awards.  They  e played  that  demo  in  renowned  Festivals  as  for  Monkey  Week  2012  and ven Arenal  Sound  2012,  also  appeared  in  the  media  as  for,  Radio  3,  Mondosonoro or  MTV. At  the  end  of  2012  the  band  returns  to  the  studio  to  record  what  would  be their  first  album  named  "E nclosed  Spaces",    for  them  an  enormous  and exciting  learning  experimental    experience. "Enclosed  Spaces"  was  released  in  September  2013  and  the  premiere  took place  in  the  Deleste  Festival  2013  and  featuring  with  French  Films  on  Spanish Tour.  Later  on  Juli an  Dolado  replaced  drummer  Jorge  Serrano. The  2013-2014  season  was  highly  satisfactory.  The  album  had  a  very  good reception  from  the  press,  appeared  on  the  top  lists  of  the  year,  the  songs were  played  on  international  radios  as  for  New  York,  Mexico and  Argentina... Luckily  the  concerts  continued  unabated,  they  even  were  one  of  the  eight  emerging  bands  selected  by  Captain  Demo  (Radio  3)  to  perform  a  concert  at the  IRTVE  and  won  the  XIV  Valencia  Crea  Awards  for  Best  album. During  the  summer  of  2014  Gatomidi  produced  a  digital  format  single,  their version  of  'I'm  wating  for  the  man'  of  The  Velvet  Underground  a  tribute  that  the  band made  to  one  of  their  favorite  groups  and  which  received  a satisfactory  acceptance. In summer of 2014 the band played in festivals like FIB, ARENAL SOUND, FRA. Gatomidi  has  just  finished  recording  their  next  album  which  will  be released  soon.
