Submarine Bells the iconic early album from The Chills' catalogue has been remastered for a super sweet moment of ear candy, perfect for rediscovery - out on translucent green coloured vinyl.

Fronted by the rare talent of Martin Phillipps, The Chills were originally formed in 1980 and had a revolving cast of band members, with Phillipps remaining the only constant. His knack for writing fantastic pop songs led to chart hits back home and a cult following around the world. With their early releases via Flying Nun Records, The Chills produced a number of critically acclaimed recordings such as the single 'Pink Frost' (their first hit) from the compilation album Kaleidoscope World and 'Wet Blanket' from the LP Brave Words.

Martin has a single-minded determination to take quality, original NZ-sounding, melodic rock music global. His requirement of band members has been to meet a standard of musicianship, which is necessary to deliver The Chills songs with essential consistent energy. This determination stems from the punk rock ethics of Martin's 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. This live energy is the central reason why The Chills are remembered fondly in all of the thirty-nine countries that they have thus far visited. It's the combination of this AND the consistent quality of their songs which have established The Chills as one of the most well-known New Zealand groups to date.
