"Discos Tormento"

"Pride of Tijuana
Ibi ego: the youngest of the bunch. What used to be a 4 piece garage band has now transformed into an electro pop trio. Lovely, well crafted, fresh and beautiful"

- SONIKA magazine (on an article about Ebi Ego's label Discos tormento) - Sonika Magazine (México)


"Straight from a basement from the border city of Tijuana mexico, their sound is a mixture of nostalgia, electronic beats, raw synths and sweet whispering vocals. Ibi ego explores an introverted side of music" - PLUG magazine Mexico

"Good Vibes"

"Their uniqueness lies in discarding the use of modern electronic sounds, to create their own brand of electro pop" - Indie Rocks Magazine (Mexico)

In November, 2003, Ibi Ego was born in a basement between the hills of the city of Tijuana, Baja California, and quickly gained the attention of the local critics with their synth-indie-guitar-rock sound, something that was, in that particular moment, a new contribution to the Tijuana scene.
After playing for more than 2 years in local forums and visiting cities like San Diego, Los Angeles and Mexicalli, the band undergoes a lineup change that motivates an evolution of their sound.
Since the lineup change, Ibi Ego has been You Schaffner (vocals, bass and keyboards), Gabriel Duprat (keyboards, guitar and programming) and David Bravo (vocals, guitar and drums). Together, they begin a new period in Ibi Ego’s history in 2007, when they join Discos Tormento’s roster.
By trying to rediscover their own vision of pop, they land upon a sound that replaces their guitar distortion for sharp beats and synthesizers, indie rock for taciturn dream-pop, Sonic Youth for Cocteau Twins.
The new material that Ibi Ego has been working on still carries some remainders of their guitar past in songs like “You & Me v.s. the Sea” and “Bon”, but the new incarnation of the bans is more nostalgic and melancholic, filled with Polaroid landscapes and memories of teenage mixtapes.
