Belgian multi-instrumentalist Wim Lankriet has announced that he will put his Euphemia Rise project on the backburner, and concentrate on his writing of prose and drawing, saying goodbye for now with the release of two new tracks.
Founded in 2020 by Brussels-based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Wim Lankriet, Euphemia Rise is a project like no other. Inspired by artists such as True Widow, Emma Ruth Rundle and King Woman, Euphemia Rise have created a sound that artfully blends bold ‘90s vibes with more contemporary alt-rock influences, striking hard with dark, twisted love songs and fiercely original narratives.
After releasing their debut single in September of 2020, the band followed things with their debut record, ‘Born a Cow’, unleashing a bold illustration of Lankriet’s many talents, which includes his roles as a singer, songwriter, guitarist, and keyboard player. Unconventional, yet classical, ‘Born a Cow’ layered a fine combination of guitars and electronics, layered vocals and spacey synths, with bold, emotive lyrics that explore the dark sides of human relations.
Today, he's shared ‘Children Who Will Change the World’ featurinh two tracks about two people growing up in a small town, facing narrow-mindedness and village insularity, and finding solace in their friendship/love.
Adding to the release and speaking of the future, Wim explained, "I’ll be taking a long break from music now. This year I already wasn’t very active because I focussed on writing prose and drawing, and I have decided to further dedicate myself to these projects. I don’t know at this point if I will continue Euphemia Rise, because I’m also preparing a new music project. I'll see. I have lots of exciting new plans and a huge daily workload."
