For an act with less than 12-months to their name, Frozemode, have undeniably made an indelible impression on the widescreen of the current soundscape. Fresh off the back of their debut performance at Reading and Leeds, which saw them attract the biggest crowds the BBC Introducing stage saw over the whole weekend, the band substantiate why they are already a 2024 ones to watch as they deliver another vehement sonic statement in the form of “Making It Up” this October 6th 2023.
Driven by a galvanic drum and bass beat, synergised with the equally powerful presence of electric guitar, “Making It Up” is another 3-minute offering that is destined to stir a wave of mosh pits and unruly chaos amongst their thirsty fans. Expressing their chameleonic tendencies, the track fuses a multitude of their alternative frequencies into its overall sonic standpoint, taking an unapologetically bold, genre-spurning stance.
Contrary to Frozemode’s timeline of events to date, “Making It Up” is very simply the bands protest that, that is their approach to music. Aptly put in their own words; “Just like this quote, this track is about making it up. Life is about living in the moment and creating your own success and that’s what we’re about”
Radiating a formidable vigour, whilst effortlessly preserving the distinctive, alternative style that characterises the group’s musical persona, the band’s releases continue to not only highlight their skillfulness in the rap genre but also resonates with their unique sonic fabric, as they creep further into the alternative realm.
Gaining momentum as one of the most impressive live performers, Frozemode entered the year with next to no live feats to their name. They will end the year having supported Jelani Blackman, to later being invited to join his “Live & Direct” night at Fabric, performed alongside names such as Tiggs Da Author, Sam Gellaitry, Lauren Faith, Mushkilla, taken to stages at 2000trees and Reading & Leeds Festivals, and embarked on a UK-wide tour with US favourites Joey Valance and Brae.
On the ground, the band already have the esteemed endorsement of BBC Radio 1’s Jack Saunders, who honoured them as ‘Next Wave’ artists on their debut single “Maybelline”. With additional nods of approval from Complex UK, The Line of Best Fit, Dork, Culted and Wonderland, who claimed “Frozemode have plausibly delivered one of the best UK hip-hop debut cuts in recent memory”, it comes as no surprise NME have already named them a ‘breakout’ artist, in under 12 months of their inception.
