Frozen Matches


Live Review from Underground 51:
Chris B @UNDERGROUND51 warmly welcomed Frozen Matches next. The band had lost their lead singer moments earlier and had decided that the show must go on. Good for them. Slightly less clear-cut for the rest of us, although bonus points for the short instrumental intro to stop the early evening chatter.
Opening song Your Fair Lady then set the tone with a Muse-esque arrangement and some rather earnest singing. If Gray@DREAM5 were all about the gorgeous guitar, then Frozen Matches were all about the bass. If Jack White played bass, he’d insist on this itchy, scratchy, gusty sound. The rest of the band had a hard time competing.
There’s individual talent in the band but unfortunately it didn’t quite come together tonight. On their day, you can imagine Frozen Matches providing a soundtrack to the clearly dysfunctional mind of an average Hong Kong 25-year old. A little odd, and misunderstood, but determined nonetheless.
