Formed in Dunedin, New Zealand in 1980, The Chills gained deserved acclaim for their early singles including Pink FrostI Love My Leather Jacket and Wet Blanket, released by legendary New Zealand indie label Flying Nun.

The songwriting skills, vision and determination of front-man Martin Phillipps provides continuity in The Chills across the decades, through a series of line-up changes and tragedies, many international tours, and several label changes. Martin’s perseverance is inspirational and his ability to maintain a hold on his vision despite life’s obstacles has enabled him to grow and add depth to his already great song writing. The Chills have a large and loyal cult following around the world built on the strength of their recording and live shows in over 40 countries – including being only the third band from the West to play in East Germany in 1987. There have also been numerous festival appearances including Glastonbury (1987), Primavera (2016), and SXSW (2019).

The Chills are:

  • Martin Phillipps (Guitar and Vocals)
  • Callum Hampton (Bass and Backing Vocals)
  • Todd Knudson (Drums and Backing Vocals)
  • Erica Scally (Guitar, Keyboards, Violin and Backing Vocals)
  • Oli Wilson (Keyboards and Backing Vocals)
