‘Matthew 16:26’ is the new lyric video by Belgian project Euphemia Rise, from their debut album ‘Born a Cow’, out via Epictronic worldwide.
“The lyrics are about the strong bond between two people who are in the same boat living on the wild side. The title refers to the bible verse: “For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?” but the reference is more sarcastic than dramatic, as expressed in the flippant final phrase ‘What is the price of a soul like mine?’. The title is in a way also a tribute to Matthew Bellamy, as the song was composed using piano arpeggios that were inspired by Muse. “

A combination of many influences (indie rock, psychedelic, synth rock, darkwave, altpop) Euphemia Rise’s short songs are characterised by a dark mood and emotional vibe, catchy melodies, a combination of guitars and electronics, and bittersweet lyrics with sharp edges.
