Imperishable Songsmith MARTIN PHILLIPS And THE CHILLS Drop New Single ‘YOU’RE IMMORTAL’

17 December 2020

Imperishable New Zealand songsmith MARTIN PHILLIPS and his
band THE CHILLS close the year with new single YOU’RE IMMORTAL.

From a press statement we learn: Journeyman songwriter Martin Phillipps returns with
a brand-new Chills track ‘You’re Immortal’. An uplifting and provocative encounter told in
the grand baroque pop manner of Love’s ‘Forever Changes’ with a gorgeous Chills-approved melody line that harks back to the band’s greatest hits. It’s an anthem for the times, a quest
for hope set amid the misinformation of the day and the tip of a fast-melting iceberg, no less.

It’s vintage Phillips. Melodic, instantly appealing, greatly arranged and
orchestrated with choir-like harmonies and glowing horns. Top tune!

THE CHILLS Share Previously Unreleased Promo Clip For Debut 7″ ‘ROLLING MOON’

Clips that will have an impact on your eyes and your ears…


20 April 2020

New Zealand’s notorious indie act THE CHILLS led by the legendary singer/songwriter Martin Phillipps just shared a previously unreleased promo clip for their first 7″ ever called ‘ROLLING MOON’ that came out 38 years ago.

Phillipps introduced the video as follows: “Something special for all you Chills fans as legendary New Zealand cameraman/director Peter Janes has used lockdown time to edit together the long-lost ‘Rolling Moon’ footage into a clip. The result of the 1982 shoot at Pilots Bay, Dunedin were originally deemed largely too dark for use and then the film was lost for
over three decades and only recently discovered in time for a tiny piece of it to be included in the documentary ‘The Chills: The Triumph & Tragedy Of Martin Phillipps’. But now we finally have a promo clip for our first 7″ single from 1982.”

12 September 2018

The imperishable THE CHILLS led by near-legendary singer/songwriter MARTIN PHILIPPS will release new, excellent (yes, we already heard it! It’s quite impressive) LP SNOWBOUND this Friday. An album about “consolidation, re-grouping, acceptance and mortality. Hopefully
a kind of Carole King ‘Tapestry’ for ageing punks.”
says the songsmith about the fresh record. To get us all in the right mood here’s a most fascinating video for COMPLEX. One of the ardent tracks on the longplayer, rolling ardently from start to finish while juiced keys and
a steamy chorus pump up the adrenalin. Watch/listen here…
