Freeez gained higher sales with this record than with the previous single, "Keep In Touch". "Southern Freeez" reached the top 10 of the UK national charts during February 1981 ("Keep In Touch" only reached number #49 in UK).
The titular Southern Freeez is attested to derive from a dance move, "The Freeze," used by clubbers in the "Royalty" club, Southgate in the early 1980s. A then-popular track, The Groove by Rodney Franklin, has moments where the band drops out for a bar, and a style of freezing movement at these points took hold.
