The Chills are a New Zealand rock band formed in Dunedin in 1980. The band is essentially the continuing project of singer/songwriter Martin Phillipps, who was the group’s sole constant member. In this recording he is joined by Justin Howard (Bass), Jimmy James Stephenson (Drums) and Andrew Todd (Keyboards).

The band was one of the leading proponents of the Dunedin sound,  a genre related to traditional indie pop featuring “jingly jangly guitar”, minimal bass and loose drumming and keyboards.

In October 2015, the band issued Silver Bullets, their first album-length release in 19 years.

In February 2017, the band released the David Bowie song “Conversation Piece”. The band released Snow Bound its seventh album, on September 14, 2018.
