yeule is the name used by 23-year-old Nat Ćmiel, a Singapore-born, London-based musician and artist who identifies as a nonbinary cyborg entity. They make ethereal, digital dreampop, often with themes of self, (dis)embodiment, alienation and intimacy in the online world. they also have a Twitch stream, which covers topics from gaming to makeup, and a Discord server shared with their fan community. There's an interview with yeule in MusicTech, discussing their background in online culture, their ideas (Donna Haraway's Cyborg Manifesto comes up), the recurring idea of “glitch” their upcoming album Glitch Princess, and a 4-hour ambient track they recently made in collaboration with the hyperpop producer Danny L. Harle.

This is so pretty! My Name is Nat Ćmiel is like a posthumanist anthem for anyone whose relationship to their physical selves is at-best tenuous, and I'm loving the Serotonin II album. Thanks for posting this, acb!!!

A live performance yeule played today at Somerset House organised by Barcelona electronic festival Sónar, singing and playing piano, starting with Debussy's Clair De Lune, then transitioning into one of their own songs, with accompaniment by Danny L. Harle and Lucinda Chua. It's quite a bit more intense than their Serotonin-era work.
