Today, yeule, born Nat Ćmiel, announces signing to Bayonet Records and shares a new video for her single ‘Pretty Bones’. yeule’s music is complex, intuitive, and deeply personal. She creates through a launchpad, keyboard, and microphone as she morphs her original cinematic classical compositions into electronica. As a practising visual artist, her works emanate her deep connection to the process of mark making, both visually and sonically, enveloping us into a world all her own.
‘Pretty Bones,’ directed by Joy Song, is a visual as compelling as its sonic counterpart. The video is a provocative and surreal passage through time that montages time lapses of decay; from a rotting lavish feast to macro images of mould spores and bio-luminescent fungi. It is in part a metaphor, comparing different planes of existence living vs. rotting to digital created personas vs. reality.
yeule is the manifested reflection of Nat Ćmiel. yeule’s music is as ethereal as it is dynamic, reflective of her nomadic upbringing. Though she grew up and attended school in Singapore for most of her life, her family travelled often, developing emotional connections with places far from home that left her searching, unmoored, putting forth a creation that is in constant metamorphosis.
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.
