Artist Overview

The Chills are arguably the band most indelibly associated with 'The Dunedin Sound' — and one of label Flying Nun's enduring and influential figureheads. With mainstay Martin Phillipps at the helm, the band has been through more than 20 line-up changes and released six albums of elemental pared-back guitar-pop throughout the 80s and 90s. Their "series of brilliant singles" (The Guardian) includes 'I Love My Leather Jacket', 'Heavenly Pop Hit' and moody post-punk ballad 'Pink Frost'. The band reached the pinnacle of its popular success in 1987, playing to 60,000 at the UK's famed Glastonbury Festival.
