Although the story of Camilo Séptimo begins in 2013, Manuel Mendoza (Voz y Bajo), Jonathan Meléndez (Keyboards) and Erik Vázquez (Guitar) make up a band with musicians who have a long career within the Mexican independent scene.

Everything starts from Folk demos that Manuel had recorded in his home studio, sketches. From those sessions the first single, titled "Portales," was derived, a track that was reviewed in media such as El Fanzine, LifeBoxSet, Marvin, Indie Rocks !, URL Magazine, which highlights the melodic work of the voice, as well as the nostalgia and textural production of the instruments.

Later and after launching a promotional video for "Portales," the band demonstrated its eclectic character with the release of "Do not Trust Me" as the second single, and a piece that vindicates the festive mood of the new wave, but with guitars reminiscent of more current genres such as math rock. Although the influences of this track are ango-cut, the band remains true to his idea of making lyrics sung in Spanish.
