Nat Ćmiel was born in Singapore, lives in London and travels musically under the name yeule. Since the multimedia artists use the pronouns they / them, they are spoken of in the plural. The album "Glitch Princess" was released in 2022 and located yeule somewhere between shoegaze melancholy and a kind of slo-mo version of hyperpop.
The always tasteful critics of "The FADER" called the record "a challenging effort that also doesn't shy away from bold pop moments" and Pitchfork ranked "Glitch Princess" among the most important albums of the year.
However, yeule do not only operate with musical means, which is particularly important at their concerts. Their songs are accompanied by exciting visuals, charged with new meaning, amplified and sometimes shot to pieces. In May a new single from them was released, which shows yeule on new paths.
The shoegaze influence becomes clearer with yeule, the glitch sounds recede into the background. As they say, "'sulky baby' was like a 2000s alternative-rock shoegaze hybrid with a touch of sad satire. I felt like I was speaking to a younger version of me, stopping her from crying and looking back at the way I betrayed and neglected that innocence of myself.” yeule also revealed to Pitchfork magazine that a new album is in the works to be released by Ninja Tune. It will sound like "Emo for Cyborgs" and "sweeter" than the previous albums.
In December, yeule will present their new songs live at an exclusive show at the Zenner in Berlin.
