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 song writing 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).

Although The Chills have famously been through many personnel changes, the current line-up has been in place, more or less, for longer than most rock bands survive. This line-up provides the stability and musical competence that enables Martin to build on his legacy, and continue to write, record and perform his impressive collection of songs.

Martin’s determination stems from the punk rock ethics of his musical awakening and from the subsequent proximity to people like Chris Knox who drove home how crucial it was to deliver music always with intensity and conviction. It’s the live energy and the consistent quality of their songs which have established The Chills as one of the most well-known New Zealand groups to date – particularly in the US, UK and Europe.

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)

    Unwed Sailor

    Pop

    The journey of Unwed Sailor began in Seattle, WA in 1998, shortly after Johnathon Ford departed critically praised bands Roadside Monument and Pedro the Lion. While working within those projects, Ford began writing instrumental music after listening to Tortoise, Pullman, and seeing bands like Physics perform live. After recruiting Dave Bazan (Pedro the Lion), Casey Wescott (Fleet Foxes), and Melissa Palladino (Danielson Famile) to play on the now classic Firecracker EP, Unwed Sailor was born. Two decades and seventeen releases later, Ford has continued to rely on the band as a device for personal exploration and emotive narration. Unwed Sailor now joins forces with Spartan Records for the release of their latest moody and cinematic journey, Truth or Consequences, a sonic examination of particular memories or moments in Johnathon Ford's life, with each song serving as a unique snapshot of an overarching narrative. Truth or Consequences is shaped around familiar musical DNA. Heavily present, driving, and stacked bass lines; wandering and evolving song structures; soaring crescendos and moody diminuendos; and, of course, a gripping sense of sonic storytelling.
