Euphoria (Hindi: युफ़ोरिया), is an Indian rock band from the city of Delhi, India. Euphoria is an Indian rock band with a twist, considering they play rock music in Hindi. Euphoria is considered as one of the biggest bands of the subcontinent. Euphoria was put together by Dr. Palash Sen and his friends in New Delhi in 1988. The Band is a also considered a sole of the pop music wave which hit India in the mid nineties. The band released their fifth studio album ITEM in 2011 on Universal Music India, and is currently on tour to promote it.
EUPHORIA... THE BAND... the BASICS... & its DREAMS
... The state of high! The state in a psychological disorder called hypomania (the first stage of mania).
14 years back HIND ROCK wasn't coined as just a phrase for hype (they hate the hype!) It was perhaps the simplest way to describe their music.. (There are other choice descriptions for their music but they can only be sought from other Indian bands, or their ex band mates)
Today, 2012 A.D. EUPHORIA has created a home for itself in the hearts of music aficionados and supporters. The non believers still find excuses but... “They are the challenge!”
Good or bad or ugly, EUPHORIA are the only ones of their kind or creed. Do we need to tell you why?
"People choose to walk the oft beaten track! I chose to take a detour and walk alone. As in the words of Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore... If no one will hear your call... EKLA CHOLO RE (walk alone)!!" says Palash Sen, lead singer and EUPHORIA's "Boss"(the world calls him the father of Hind Rock). Well, "EKLA" they're not walking for sure...
1998, October... DHOOM, 2000, February... PHIR DHOOM (2 huge successes like a double whammy). Then January 2001... India's first-ever single ... MANTRA! And then January 2003 came EUPHORIA Gully, the reaffirmation of the Euphoria sound, the magic and the taste of sweet success. 2004 saw Euphoria collaborating with the Pakistani boys STRINGS for the Indo-Pak cricket series official anthem, Jeet Lo Dil. They won hearts again, (Thank God the Indian team won the series too!). Hey what's your mantra for success? Simple, they say, "Bas jaan lo hai pyaar kya, hai yeh hamara mantra!" 2006 – MEHFUZ, and yes they are mehfuz in the love and the prayers of millions.. 2008- ReDHOOM, 12 of their greatest hits since ’98 packaged in an album. A first for an Indian non film artist. The listeners rewound with them.. Then came their piece de resistance when they made the theme song for the 2010 Commonwealth games – Dilli meri jaan. And finally, EUPHORIA’s most mature and introspective album - ITEM in 2011.. Why Item? Well what else are we all but Items..
The album has already received critical and commercial success in times when film music is Omnipresent.. C U Later’s English version climbed up to as high as #5 on VH1’s top 10 International charts.. A first of it’s kind achievement for any Indian band..
So come be here this November, in TECHXETRA, the biggest techno-cultural fest of the northeast India at Tezpur University and witness EUPHORIA LIVE!! IN ACTION!!
