THE CHILLS – Snow Bound LP
DELAYED – expected soon
The Chills’ ever-present songwriter Martin Phillipps has a checklist.
1 Establish band as much-loved New Zealand legends. Check.
2 Release the greatest summer single ever in the shape of ‘Heavenly Pop Hit’. Check.
3 Go on lengthy 19-year sabbatical out of the public eye. Check.
4 Return to recording and cock a weary eye at politics, the environment and other social issues with an infectious earworm in mind. Check.
5 Sonically weld your “spindly guitar sound” and psyche roots to a new found angst about, well, just about everything on a brand new “grown up” opus called ‘Snow Bound’. Check.
