Zealand. Liberated
Zealand
Zealand have just delivered one of 2018's most compelling debuts. The Christian rock band were founded by Phil Joel, who is best known for his work in the Grammy Award nominated Newsboys.

Having debuted Zealand a couple of years ago with a stunning EP, the pressure was on to deliver an even more impressive album. Liberated takes the best of Coldplay and fuses it with elements of The Black Keys and Jack Savoretti to deliver a truly moving musical moment.

We caught up with frontman Phil to find out what song always makes him...

Smile

Lenny Kravitz’s first album ‘Let Love Rule’ is so stinking courageous and analog cool that whenever I listen to it (which is too often) it’s impossible to not bust out a blissful smirk. I dare ya.

Contemplate

One by U2. “We’re one, but we’re not the same, we get to carry each other, carry each other” Songs like that get into your bone marrow and make you want to be a better man and look out for other’s a little better. BTW: Definitely not the new Kanye West song.



Cry

Fake Plastic Trees by Radiohead. Something in that Lyric and Thom Yorke's voice hits some kind of deep melancholic chord inside me and it gets me every time.

Laugh

Anything Beck does just makes me laugh. It’s not a bad kinda laugh, it’s a full respect kinda laugh. He’s so awkward yet somehow so cool.

Want to work out

That song doesn’t exist, although I wish it did.

Reminisce

The Cult’s album ‘Electric’ always takes me back to being an uncomfortable teenager wondering what was going to happen in my life.

It’s all worked out ok so far but when I listen to that album it still makes me wanna sneak out my bedroom window at 3am and meet my mates at the park.

Relax

Birds of the High Arctic by David Gray. Actually all of his music puts me in an instant state of ahhhhh. It’s my music of choice to make dinner with my wife and chill.

Feel Determined

Gold On the Ceiling by The Black Keys always soundtracks my drive to the hardware store. It helps me get my home handy man groove on when I come off the road to my wife’s ‘Honey-do-list’.

Dance

You Spin Me Round (Like a Record) by Dead or Alive. For me a good 80’s throwback always gets the job done!
