RECENT PRESS & NEWS

Singer Jake Zavracky formerly led one of Boston's better hard-rock badns, Quick Fix.  But he has expanded his sound with the impressive Cyanide Valentine, incorporating a techno-pop element and a more sophisticated sense of arrangement and lyrics.

BOSTON GLOBE

The unique and groundbreaking sound of The Cyanide Valentine -- a cross between Primal Scream, Thriller-era Michael Jackson, and Prodigy -- is as unique and unlikely as the covert partnership that created it. Jake Zavracky is the brash, towering atheist who previously fronted the guitar-driven hard rock group Quick Fix. Wendy Mittelstadt is a slight, unassuming (and devoutly Catholic) electrical engineer with a secret penchant for audio loops and synthesizers. Together, the tension within the duo creates a live act that is visually striking, and a recorded sound that is simply mind-blowing.

Emerging from the break-up of Quick Fix in 2004, Zavracky set out to create a fresh musical sound, incorporating the danceable energy of techno and synthesizer music with the pop feel of guitar rock. In Mittelstadt, he found an improbable partner-in-arms. Originally working as a basement project, the demo tapes that the two produced soon found admirers. Onstage, the textured, dynamic sound of The Cyanide Valentine -- amazingly produced by only two musicians -- awed and titilated audiences. Now, with the release of Let It Rot, the duo prepares to bring that expansive combination of pop, rock, and big beat to the masses.
