The first solo single from Jonn Gauntletier of Ars Phoenix, "January Freeze" explores the existential anguish of the New Year, the tyranny of the wrist watch and "homogenous empty time." A slow burn that tries to contain its intensity with stoic restraint, "January Freeze" treads new ground while harkening to other anti-climax classics like "The Overload" by Talking Heads, Joy Division's "Atrocity Exhibition," Interpol's "Leif Erikson," and "Equal Ways" by Clan of Xymox.
