Review

On February 14th, Flowers For Juno released their debut EP, “Be My Bloody Valentine. Hailing from Newcastle, the gothic rock/metal duo is comprised of members Benjó James and Jack Wilson.

The EP’s intro track “Dead Air” acts as a bridge into the next song with the ambient sounds an old film before leading into a beeping countdown.

“Physical Culture” starts off with a vocal sample introducing the bands performance with a creative style that matches the intro track. Flowers For Juno starts with bright synths and electrifying guitar riffage. Distorted low singing vocals slowly change into higher vocal runs before exploding into a chorus with energetic high vocals and soaring synth tones. With an upbeat rock sound and strong vocal effects, Flowers For Juno create a unique and distinct sound.

The 3rd track of the EP, “Can’t Help Falling in Love” is a shortened cover of Elvis Presley’s original song. Flowers For Juno put their own spin on the track with atmospheric synthscapes and low vocals creating a dynamic and new take on the song.

Next up is “It’s Not My Fault” which starts with dramatic orchestral strings before launching off into energetic guitar progressions and bright melodies. Flowers For Juno does an excellent job of creating contrast through powerful atmospheric shifts. The band introduces and rips away instrumentals and vocals at various points, creating a strong focus on the song’s atmosphere. “It’s Not My Fault” features a haunting yet melodic chorus with strong instrumental hooks and powerful vocals. Flowers For Juno fade out the song with a distinct electronic vocoder effect.

“Have you ever seen a human heart? It looks like a fist, wrapped in blood!” starts with ambient and gradually growing strings, pulsating pads, and crackling vinyl that eventually introduces piano and glitching vocals. At just over 5 minutes, Flowers For Juno create a slow-building song with an experimental tone that captures a dark yet ambient atmosphere.

The final track is a remix of “Physical Culture”. The track starts with ominous and building ambience that creates a strong feeling of discomfort with a fever dream-like sound. With an incredibly experimental style, the final track of the EP, features thumping heartbeats, rising industrial ambience, and reverb-heavy soaring vocals. Flowers For Juno creates an intense and wildly interesting sound to close out the EP, ending it on a different and unique tone.

Flowers For Juno display their distinct sound with their new EP “Be My Bloody Valentine”. The band shows a prowess for creating deep ambient soundscapes and a gothic vibe that delivers exciting vocal melodies and instrumental compositions.
