CARDIAC MOVE release first single of new album: “WOMAN OF SAMARIA”
With “Woman of Samaria”, the first single of Cardiac Move’s second album, the renowned Austrian band takes a stand against the exploitation of women, campaigning for more compassion and human solidarity. The support they got for this was of none other than Jack Johnson’s very own producer: the award-winning Robert Carranza produced Cardiac Move’s groundbreaking new album in his studio in Los Angeles. The winners of the Ö3-Soundcheck band contest will donate the profits of the new single’s sales to women in need in Rwanda: A Missio educational project offers the framework for girls to be able to take their lives into their own hands and actively shape their future with the aid of solid professional training.
Johnny, Cardiac Move’s singer and lyricist, explains: “We have been given a lot as a band. That’s why we want to give something in return. Our song ‘Woman of Samaria’ tells a story that is originally from the bible. The Samarian woman is a woman who has been taken advantage of too many times, who has been cast out of society because of her origins. But this doesn’t mean that her life was wasted or meaningless. I think that many women, especially in poorer countries, make experiences that are similar to those of the Samarian woman. What they need is somebody who believes in them, approaches them, gives them a chance.”
Cardiac Move’s five musicians, Johnny (Voc. /Keys), Josh (Bass), Kuri (Drums), Emi (Guit.) und Manu (Guit.), are proud of their new piece of work and are excitedly looking forward to its presentation. “Thanks to the professional production under the Californian sun we really don’t have to shy away from international comparison,” says Josh, who is not only the band’s bass player but also their sound engineering mastermind.
The energetic live performances of Cardiac Move have become legendary and there will be plenty of them on occasion of the single release: “We will try to fit in as many performances as possible because we simply love performing our new songs live. We’re really looking forward to our fans and audience. And then, with ‘Woman of Samaria’, we also have an important message that we want to share with as many people as possible.”
