About
Euphemia Rise is a Belgian alternative rock project, founded in 2020. Born from the feeling that today’s indie rock is too much about playing it safe, the intention of Euphemia Rise is exactly the opposite: to take risks and be unusual, finding liberation from the genre stereotypes, and create alternative rock that is raw, personal and full of sharp edges.
New single 'Your Sorority'
Your Sorority is an orchestral altpop song with a happy vibe, about two boys who use cannabis and explore kinky sex together, seeking liberation from the conventional opinions and homophobic attitudes of their peers.
Surely also check out the happy and uplifting video with two wonderful crazy girls :)

"Candid, shameless, and strangely accepting, Euphemia Rise's debut album revels in the darkness that we all fight, reaching out and letting us know that no matter how unassailable our situation might seem, we’re not alone."
Broken 8 Records
"Born a Cow tells tales about rent boys, drugs, prostitution, sadomasochism, and rape. Most people look away from those subjects, but Lankriet exposes them, using a mix of metal, psychedelic and gothic rock."
Here Comes The Flood

Bio
Named after a prostitute who became empress of Rome, Euphemia Rise was founded in 2020 by Brussels-based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Wim Lankriet. A combination of many influences (indie rock, psychedelic, artrock altpop) Euphemia Rise's short songs are characterised by a dreamy mood and intense vibe, catchy melodies, a combination of guitars, orchestral arrangements and electronics, and uncanny lyrics with sharp edges. 
A debut single 'Farewell to Greatness' was released in September 2020. After this Lankriet devoted himself to recording the first full length album 'Born a Cow', which was released on 18 February 2022. It was followed by the single ‘Your Sorority’ in April 2022.
Wim Lankriet is a Belgian songwriter, guitarist, vocalist and keyboard player. His signature sound is forged by merging classic songwriting with more unconventional elements. Between 2009-2013 he was the brain behind the psychedelic rock project Magdalena Solis, which released two albums and played at the 2013 Roadburn Festival.
