ANGHARAD Releases New Single “Because I Am A Woman”

Out Now via Libertino Records

Seeing the start of a new month in style, ANGHARAD welcomed the sublime new single “Because I Am A Woman”, released into the world May 3rd via Libertino Records. The new single is the first track taken from her debut solo album and the mighty release is destined to delight.

Of the new track ANGHARAD details: “‘Because I Am A Woman’ was written as a response to the widely accepted beliefs in the music industry that it’s not possible to be a mother and have a successful career.

I received some hostile reactions myself when I announced that I was pregnant. I was told that I was unambitious and that I was no longer serious about following a career in music. These outdated, sexist attitudes need to change.

This is a call to arms to any woman who has experienced similar attitudes and expressing the need to stand up for change. Rather than getting angry about it, this song says “yes we can!” And “yes, we are capable of anything!” I believe it is possible to have both, and do both well, when society will allow us.

My mother is also a musician, but took a back seat from her musical career for some 15 years in order to focus on raising me and my sister. Even before I was ready for children, it played on my mind how could I follow a career in music and become a mother. I used to play out different scenarios in my mind, such as giving myself a certain amount of years, then a change of career.

When the time came, I wasn’t ready for a career change. I felt I had more to offer creatively than ever before. I’d reached an age where I had knowledge, confidence and useful networks to really progress to the next level. I wasn’t prepared to let all that go simply because I’d decided to start a family.

So far, starting a family has enhanced my creative output. I just need to be flexible, and open to thinking differently about how to manage it and get it out there. My wish is to see the industry being as open to these changes as me, and every other mother who’s tirelessly figuring out how to do both.”

The vibrance of this track exudes from the driven beat and powerful exploration immediately. The horns, the tempo, the percussive excellence and above all the immersive melody, these compelling attributes align to become the addictive bed for the vivid vocal harmonies to soar. This addictive creation captures this intense warmth from the textures on offer throughout, the lyrics melt with the ambitious drive.

The composition almost catches the audience off guard, the exhilaration of this exploration excels into this adventurous territory and this disco-inspired composition hooks you, the release is primed with this eccentric energy and inspiring honesty. ANGHARAD pairs this classic joyousness through the colourful textures with this lyrical sincerity. Lyrically, this fearless commitment explores the honest insights of womanhood, and ANGHARAD rightfully owns the expressive notion and challenges the opinions of others through this crucial display. The results will move you on so many levels. The new release is a powerful voyage and ANGHARAD has created such a dazzling anthem of our times.

We already can’t wait to hear more from this vital artist.

‘Because I Am A Woman’ announces the start of ANGHARAD’s new creative journey with its Studio 54, Disco ‘floor filling’ rhythm, giddy, sweeping strings and sparkling horns. ANGHARAD the musical chameleon singing her stories, her truth that compels us to listen.” – Libertino
