New Song Of The Day: The Chills – Worlds Within Worlds

Whoo-hoo! New music from The Chills. The song is Worlds Within Worlds.

There’s plenty happening in the world of Martyn Phillipps and The Chills…a new song, a new album and a tour. Here’s the record company blurb with info:


Many conspiracy theorists don’t seem to appreciate the vast numbers of people who would have to be ‘in on the secret’ – and that humans are not good at keeping secrets.

They also miss that scientists, under severe peer scrutiny, are actually working to protect and enlighten them.

The Chills announce a blistering array of supports joining them for their nationwide Scatterbrain tour April / May 2021 including the likes of Purple Pilgrims, Luke Buda, Mousey, Asta Rangu, Bitter Defeat and Devil’s Elbow.

But in a glorious twist of fate, they have also roped in their old friends THE BATS as very special guests for their Auckland Powerstation show on May 14th.

With Purple Pilgrims in support, it will make for a night of pure and joyous celebration of Flying Nun alumni, coinciding with the 40th anniversary of the iconic indie label which opened its doors in 1981.

The Chills and The Bats have only performed together once before, at the Dunedin Town Hall on the 8th of July 1990 on the Submarine Bells tour, alongside The 3Ds.

The Chills are feeling honoured to be performing alongside The Bats for only the second time in our careers’ – Martin Phillipps, The Chills

‘1990?! About bloody time we celebrated with our seniors (the 40 year old Chills) and share the stage with them again! (We’re only 38!) – Paul Kean, The Bats

Dunedin’s finest, The Chills release their seventh studio album ‘Scatterbrain’ (May 14th, Fire Records),  a glorious self- examination of Martin Phillipps’ songwriting hot (ish) on the heels of the hugely successful ‘Snow Bound’ (2018) and the critically-acclaimed movie ‘The Chills: The Triumph And Tragedy Of Martin Phillipps’ a year later.

“It’s about artistic integrity, self- realisation, self-acceptance and a reflection on mortality.”
