The Chills
Molten Gold Fire Records 7”

Article written by Ged M - Jul 23, 2014

Deep joy - a new song from Flying Nun legends The Chills! ‘Molten Gold’ has the same classy janglepop sound as the Submarine Bells record, while a jagged violin adds a disturbing edge to ensure the single doesn’t soar too ecstatically. Maybe the bells at the end are a tad OTT but it’s still three and a half minutes of pretty close to pop perfection. The tingle of recognition descends as soon as the wonderfully eerie riff of ‘Pink Frost 13’ kicks in after a long introduction. It’s a reworking of the 1982 single that’s been played by the various line ups of the band ever since, but this crystal clear version brings out the disturbing tale of love and loss even more chillingly than the original did. New’s as good as old, showing that Martin Phillips hitting 50 hasn’t affected his knack for writing heavenly pop songs.
