The Chills ‘Pink Frost’ is almost definitely not about cake
Sat at home one night recently, I hit upon the very clever idea of making a playlist of my favourite songs for the walk to work. Pretty innovative, I know. I reasoned that listening to tracks I treasure, rather than have to review, might get my days off to a better start. Four hours and about 250 songs later (I shit you not) it was done. What was at the top? ‘Pink Frost’ by The Chills.
It throws you a curveball (baseball analogy from an Englishman, oh dear) this one – everything’s all happy bunnies and sunshine lollipops to begin with and then from nowhere it dives into a completely gut-wrenching guitar line. It’s nostalgic, paranoid, brutally honest and in it’s own way very beautiful.
Favourite song ever? Fuck knows, it changes with the wind.
