New Zealand icons The Chills have a new LP, their seventh, out this month entitled Scatterbrain. We caught up with founding member Martin Phillips to discuss the history of the group, their sonic trajectory, being an “autarchic on the mend”, the new record, and more.
“There have been a lot of wasted years, being down and out, and, you know, drug addicted,” says Phillips. “This time for the first time, I feel that we’re back where we should be and we’re able to move forward. I’m excited about it.”
