The Ides of March, the 15th, is a day infamous in Roman history as the date of settled debts and the notorious assassination of Julius Caesar. It also happens to be the date of this new release from Newcastle duo Flowers For Juno.

Without Love seems to describe a personal journey of things never experienced or witnessed, equating the absence to being without love. There’s a Goth rock leaning to both the music and vocals, although each is almost fighting the other at times. The rather timid guttural growling at the start eventually gives way to a hooky chorus with brighter-sounding singing. While it hints at its 80s Goth influences, it also feels too under-produced to match their tone despite the sing-along melody bursting to get out.
