"Songlines Across New Zealand Review"
5 stars"

It has been 20 years since the last full length album came out from the chills (although from time to time we have been treated with special releases from their archive), the album carries that signature Chills feel that harkens back to the days of Submarine Bells and Softbomb. This album has an energetic enthusiasm about it especially with the title track (and one of my personal favourites) Silver Bullets which is just sung beautifully, the very prophetic track Underwater Wasteland talking about how we as humanity take and take and not thinking about the consequences/ effects to nature around us, another two great tracks I must recommend are America Says Hello and Molten Gold. Overall this album has a nice polished simply beautiful golden sound and I surely hope it is not another 20 years before another full length album comes from The Chills


Bursting with chiming Dunedin-pop anthems, melodic rock and Phillipps’ playful punk-rock tendencies, the thrilling new album brings them to the next chapter.

Recorded at Albany Street Studios in Dunedin (NZ) the album instantly reaffirms Phillipps’ aptitude for writing intelligent and timeless pop songs delivered with conviction. Whether tackling issues on the economy, fighting with ‘Silver Bullets’ or the observant nature of Southern Lights on ‘Aurora Corona’, The Chills complex pop resonates in a cacophony of dark-edged songs. Their underlying melancholy remains and is offset by their signature catchy melodies bringing a haunting depth to their idiosyncratic sou­nd.

New Zealand legends, The Chills are led by Martin Phillipps. Formed in 1980, the indie luminaries revolving line-up has had Phillipps at its core for over thirty years. Joining influential labels Creation and Homestead, they then moved to Warner Bro’s imprint Slash and onto the world of majors. At the height of their success John Peel invited them in for a number of BBC sessions which were released for the first time late last year.

Significant chart success at home and a following worldwide would see 1990’s ‘Submarine Bells’ (Slash Records) gain critical acclaim. When ‘Soft Bomb’ dropped in 1992, as they toured the US, things imploded resulting in the group disbanding and it wasn’t until 1996 that their next album ‘Sunburnt’ appeared with a new line up on Flying Nun.

“Capable of rousing rock and breathtaking beauty.” – Pitchfork

“The group’s loose and energetic and its signature pop-rock is still potent and the melodies as catchy as ever.” – Pop Matters
