"Molten Gold" from The Chills

The Chills are among the stalwarts that made Dunedin, New Zealand a frequently name-checked source of great guitar pop in the '80s and '90s.  Founder, frontman and sole constant member Martin Phillipps has assembled the latest edition of the band to tour and record.  Last year they released new song "Molten Gold" only in digital format, as well as Somewhere Beautiful, an album of a live performance at a private party in 20ll (review here).  Now the glittering guitar pop of "Molten Gold" is getting a well-deserved vinyl release.   It will be paired with an re-working of the band's famed 1982 song "Pink Frost".  You can stream both tracks below.

"Molten Gold" will be released on July 29 via Fire Records on vinyl with an accompanying digital download.  Pre-orders are available now.

The Chills are Martin Phillipps (guitar/vocals), James Dickson (bass/backing vocals), Todd Knudson (drums/backing vocals), Erica Stichbury (violin/backing vocals), Oli Wilson (keys/backing vocals).
