  1. The Chills


This one is the big shiny internationally-produced Chills video, but it’s still in keeping with the band’s low-key indie style. In majestic cliff-top scenery (Ireland stands in for New Zealand) Martin Phillipps looks like he is at the top of the world, and large rocks bounce across the screen like karaoke cues; perfect imagery to match the soaring sound of this classic pop song. Apparently Phillipps was nearly swept away by a rogue wave whilst singing furiously along to a non-existent backing-tape. The rocks were made of polystyrene.

got this tape on niue, one of my fave chills albums for ages in satelite town nz during yet anotha recess, spoke to me hard, looks decidedly kiwi/amatuer if ya ask me even though the proofs in the pudding, wat happened at that time? a tour de force, bands weirdness and people in the mainstream wanting the mainstream to change creating majic, bliss indeed



Oh cool! I was in Vancouver, going through one of my homesickness phases, and yay! I got the Chills tape "Submarine Bells" - I loved this song - so upbeat... and what a contrast! to the typical NZ sound...
