The Chills frontman Martin Phillipps delves deep into his back pockets to present an eclectic and personal selection of music inspired by the joy of discovery.

In July, The Chills took us on tour with them through the UK, US and Europe. Keyboardist for the band, and keen anthropologist, Oli Wilson, talks to the fans there to figure out what makes this love of The Chills so enduring and strong.

The Chills also performed live at the 2016 NZ Festival, and back in 2012, Martin Phillipps was kind enough to play in session a couple of songs live in the RNZ studios.

The Chills play Laneway Festival on Auckland Anniversary Day 2017.
