“Driving pop fuelled by simple, incessant guitar lines, combined with Phillips’s facility for a hook-laden melody.” The Wire
“The songwriter that helped kick off indie rock as we know it.” NPR // “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
Following on from ‘The BBC Sessions’ on Fire Records, The Chills released their first full length album in nearly two decades. ‘Silver Bullets’ hailed the return of one of New Zealand’s most respected exports; 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.
