about

Originally released in 1992, The Chills’ third album ‘Soft Bomb’ came out on Slash/Warners.

“’Soft Bomb’ was The Chills' finest hour.” Perfect Sound Forever

Featuring contributions from giants of contemporary American music like Van Dyke Parks and ex dB's Peter Holsapple as collaborators.

A cohesive song cycle that brought together indie pop jangle, Phillipps’ clever lyrics, a “drunken piece of music hall” (AllMusic), an offbeat homage to Randy Newman, filmic string-laden scores, some grown up licks and three thematic interludes.

A roller coaster 17-song, 51 minute trip, a conceptual classic that embraces styles and genres.

“Their songs call like rare, exotic wines, intoxicating and addictive and beautifully melancholic, while simultaneously inspiringly uplifting.” Repeat Fanzine

‘Soft Bomb’ is an eclectic slow cooked musical stew, rich and rewarding from the much-loved storytelling songwriter Martin Phillipps.
