about

yeule is the manifested reflection of Nat Ćmiel. An ongoing project since 2012, yeule’s music is as ethereal as it dynamic, reflective of her nomadic upbringing. Though she grew up and attended school in Singapore for most of her life, her family traveled often, developing emotional connections with places far from home that left her searching, unmoored, putting forth a creation that is in constant metamorphosis.

Obsessed with tinkering and discovery, she began building her own synths. There is a complex, intuitive, and deeply personal nature to her music making. With a launchpad, keyboard and microphone she morphs her original cinematic classical compositions into electronica. More clues to her process can be found in her other mediums. As a practicing visual artist, her paintings emanate her deep connection to the process of mark making, both visually and sonically. Her first full length, Serotonin II, is the fully realized result of this process, resonating with her “mutable self-expression.” She describes this as “the stifling psychological haze turned into perfume.” Beautiful tracks like the introductory “Your Shadow,” carry the listener on a cloud--before pitch and distortion break through the mist. By the time reality (the technology of the moment) pierces beyond the angelic quality - you are met with the peaceful opening notes of “Poison Arrow.” And so it goes, a push and pull, a beautiful flux. Death, rebirth, and most mysteriously, the places in between these two hard realities are explored in depth.

Visually, yeule’s world is dreamy and breaches into the unreal, with the name yeule initially being inspired by Final Fantasy XIII-2, where a character dies in a thousand timelines because of a break in the fabric of time itself. She is born again eternally, and always meets the same
fate. In this way the artist relates when she feels herself destroying the older parts of herself, reinventing, born again from memories both real and fabricated. When discussing the artist yeule and the album Serotonin II, it is perhaps best to take the artist at her own word; “When I came up with the yeule project, she acted as a vessel for me to archive important points in my life. Each song released in its respective era reflects that part of myself, that’s most probably gone by the time you read this.” yeule is forever trying to chip away at her own identity so that she might absorb something different, foreign, the unknown force to which she is drawn.

-
“It's difficult for my mind to stay in one place. I can go back to revisit the person I was in my dreams. I see them as multiple people. Sometimes they talk to me, but I've cut most of them off because they start screaming in my ear.” - yeule, 2019

Track Name: Poison Arrow
when we were alone
i took your heart
so beautiful

i took your heart
so beautiful

Track Name: Eva
i'm not afraid of your darker side
when i'm with you
these demons in my head ain't got no place to go

i see your tears well up on your face,
but i cry with you
i won't tell you to stop cause i know how hard it is to

soft, soft, softly you
soft, soft, softly you
soft, soft, softly you
soft, soft, softly you

i'm not afraid of your darker side
when i'm with you
these demons in my head ain't got no place to go

i see your tears well up on your face,
but i cry with you
i won't tell you to stop cause i know how hard it is to

i see your tears well up on your face,
but i cry with you
i won't tell you to stop cause i know how hard it is to

i'm not afraid of your darker side
when I'm with you
these demons in my head ain't got no place to go
Track Name: Pixel Affection
(start up)

wasted
wasted in a cyber dimension
pour my heart into simulation
digital in reciprocation
i'm staring at the screen that you live in

i'm trying to remember your name then
the memory before i awaken
is coded to a million fragments
but all i had was pixel affection

pixel affection

shadows follow me and i let them
i wanna leave the world i was left in
unstable online interconnection
i'm trying to remember your name then

the memory before i awaken
is coded to a million fragments
consuming all the bones i have broken
yet all i had was pixel affection

pixel affection

(shut down)
Track Name: Pocky Boy
she says that there are voices in her head
she talks to them but she knows they are dead
there was a time when she could tell the
difference between dream and life but
now she stands so quietly
wishing she could leave us be

she says that there are voices in her head
she talks to them but she knows they are dead
once upon a time she dreamed that
she could feel love once again but
instead she looks into the night
talking to the ones who left her sad

quietly, quietly, die
there was a time to save her
quietly, quietly, die
there was a time to save her

she says that there are voices in her head
she talks to them but she knows they are dead
difference between dream and life but
now she stands so quietly
wishing she could leave us be
Track Name: Pretty Bones
don't you go leaving me
you still got a life to go
sunken eyed, hollow
teary eyes, pretty bones

i could never run from it
you know how it feels to be
tired from the weight of it
wake up and you don't feel home

say you need to rest but go
snort a line a little bit
then you think you own the world
but you can't control your fit

i dont know how to tell you
i dont know how to tell you
you tell me
Track Name: Reverie
(i loved you)

moonlight
it comes in so close
i always mistake him
for a shadow or a ghost

moonlight
bleeding heart
moonlight
saw my bleeding heart
moonlight
left me to swallow
the pain that you

moonlight
i've watched you from afar
but i still don't remember
how you fell away from me

moonlight
i've watched you from afar
but i still don't remember
how you fell away from me

(i loved you)
Track Name: Blue Butterfly
I can hear,
all the voices in my ear
I can see,
all the shadows following me

linger, and fall
linger, and fall

I can hear,
all the voices in my ear
I can see,
all the shadows following me
linger, and fall
I can hear,
all the voices in my ear
linger, and fall
I can see,
all the shadows following me...
Track Name: An Angel Held Me Like a Child
there's a cold and dark place,
dusty floors and old ash from the flames
this was where you said to me,
that I shouldn't cry when the world was cruel to me
an angel held me like a child

an angel held me like a child

there's a cold and dark place,
dusty floors and old ash from the flames
this was where you said to me -
an angel held me like a child
Track Name: Veil of Darkness
keep me alive
follow you into the light
there was one lasting glow
that i know, oh, i know

you won’t believe
anything that i say
when the world i live in
has me wounded within

so i’ll sleep, oh, i’ll sleep
oh i’ll sleep, oh i’ll sleep

when the day comes for me,
to awake
