About Band

Curiosity Valentine is a Chicago-based female-fronted solo project which began in 1995, performing industrial jazz music with a dark electronic cabaret style. It combines gothic themes, frilly dresses and Japanese influences to create a beautifully designed nightmare, characterized by electronic beats and powerful vocals. Curiosity ("Curi" for short) is a multi-instrumentalist, writing and playing all the music on her songs. A demo of the track "Vitamin Sugar" was featured on a CDNow Unheard? contest compilation in 1997. Her first album, "The Forced Magician," was released in 2004 and is available on CDBaby and iTunes. Curi and her guitarist Milky both dress in the poofy, lace-covered Japanese Gothic Lolita style of fashion. Curi speaks fluent Japanese, and some of her songs contain Japanese lyrics intertwined with English. The live shows are a flurry of synthesized beats, explosive vocals, and Mini Super Dollfies. Author Warren Ellis described Curi by saying, "She has a big, smoky, whisky-sharp voice: like Tom Waits if he were an angry 24-year-old woman preoccupied with Doom and Hate."
