about

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.

Track Name: January Freeze (Single Version)
I'm not sure if this is the best use of my time.
But then again, what could be?

Another year has passed.
What have I gained?
Another year has gone.
What have I lost?
A ledger with which to add,
or a spreadsheet to subtract.
No, it's better to leave such cruel math
to the bureaucrats

Aren't we all still learning how to live?
Aren't we all still learning how to live?
Tyrannized by the wristwatch,
homogenous empty time.

Another year has passed.
What have I gained?
Another year has gone.
What have I lost?
A ledger with which to add,
or a spreadsheet to subtract.
No, it's better to leave such cruel math
to the technocrats

I'm still learning how to live.
I'm still learning how to live.
Aren't we all still learning how to live?
Aren't we all still learning how to live?
