**Frozemode: Rising Stars in Music**
In less than a year since forming, Frozemode is making waves in the music scene. As they close out the year, the trio proves their versatility by unveiling their co-directed music video for the single "Vermin."The video coincides with their debut performance at Reading & Leeds, where the BBC Introducing stage witnessed an enthusiastic response. NME's endorsement of Frozemode as a must-see act at this year's festival is well-deserved.
In the "Vermin" music video, the trio channels their live energy, delivering passionate and dynamic performances. With an almost apocalyptic vibe, the video lives up to its title as the band members immerse themselves in London's underground, showcasing their unique style. Co-produced by band member I.V GATLIN, it's evident that Frozemode is a multifaceted creative force with promising potential.
I.V GATLIN describes the video, saying, "Creating this music video was an exciting process. While it retained a DIY spirit in many ways, we had the opportunity to use top-notch equipment and work with a skilled director of photography, which allowed us to bring to life stylized and memorable visuals that abstractly represent the track's darkness and grandeur, while also highlighting how each of the three band members contributes their distinct qualities."
With a powerful presence and a unique alternative style, "Vermin" not only showcases their rap skills but also delves deeper into the alternative genre. Despite having few live shows at the start of the year, Frozemode's live performances have been impressive. They've supported Jelani Blackman, joined his "Live & Direct" night at Fabric, shared stages with artists like Tiggs Da Author, Sam Gellaitry, Lauren Faith, and Mushkilla, and graced the stages of festivals like 2000trees and Reading & Leeds. They've also embarked on a UK-wide tour with US favorites Joey Valance and Braae.
In addition to recognition from BBC Radio 1's Jack Saunders, who labeled them 'Next Wave' artists on their debut single "Maybelline," Frozemode has received nods of approval from Complex UK, The Line of Best Fit, Dork, Culted, and Wonderland. Wonderland even declared, "Frozemode have possibly delivered one of the best UK hip-hop debut cuts in recent memory." It's no surprise that NME has already identified them as a 'breakout' artist in under a year since their inception.
