Not many artists succeed in growing older without losing their touch, their motivation
and their greed to keep on making appealing music. Veteran singer/songwriter Martin Philipps is definitely an exception. After more than 30 years he still delivers the goods.
With his band THE CHILLS he just released ninth studio album, entitled SNOWBOUND. “An album about consolidation, re-grouping, acceptance and mortality, Hopefully a kind
of Carole King ‘Tapestry’ for ageing punks…” says Philipps.
SNOWBOUND is a delightful achievement. A solid gold record of fetching pop songs, enchantingly arranged, spot-on produced and juiced with Philipps’ warm and alluring voice. Turn Up The Volume has this shiny diamond on repeat the last few days. Experience the sonic splendour for yourself right here…
