Yeule (stylised as yeule) is the musical project of Singaporean songwriter and producer Nat Ćmiel (born Natasha Yelin Chang[3]). Formed in 2012, Yeule incorporates elements of ambient, glitch and Asian post-pop.[2] The name Yeule is derived from the Final Fantasy character of the same name (spelled differently), as well as their middle name.[4]

Early life[edit]

Ćmiel was born Natasha Yelin Chang in Singapore where they attended school.[2][5] They first started playing music at the age of 6 on their parents' Yamaha piano and learned classically although eventually dropped taking lessons, and wanted to explore something more challenging which led them to guitar and drums.[6] Ćmiel initially started playing waltz pieces, though they soon moved onto songs from the soundtracks of Final Fantasy X and Kingdom Hearts.[7] They later went onto sing in a jazz band under the name Riot Diet, covering songs from Ella Fitzgerald and the Pixies.[2] After graduating from high school, they applied to Central Saint Martins to study fashion communication and womenswear.[2]

Growing up, feelings of loneliness and depression were present due in part to Ćmiel's nomadic upbringing.[5] They found solace on the internet, which would influence their later works.[8]


Ćmiel's first release under the Yeule title was their self titled EP on March 3, 2014.[4]

On December 11, 2016, Ćmiel released their second EP, Pathos, which was dedicated to David Singh.[9]

Ćmiel followed up with the OST to interactive simulator game Lost Memories Dot Net, which was released on July 17, 2017.[10]

On September 27, 2017, Ćmiel released their third EP, Coma.[11] With regard to the writing, they said that "I wrote this album to commemorate the people I'd lost."[11] The EP received a positive reception with Duncan Cooper of The Fader describing it as "dream-pop perfection".[12]

Ćmiel signed to Bayonet Records on July 17, 2019.[5]

On October 25, 2019, Ćmiel released their debut studio album Serotonin II. On the process of creating the album they said that "Writing the record, I was dreadful. I didn't ask for much, I don't need to be happy. I just wanted to be content."[8] The album received a positive critical reception with Jude Noel of Tiny Mix Tapes giving the album 4/5 and saying that "Melancholia aside, it's Serotonin II's impeccable sound design that has kept me coming back".[13]

Ćmiel teased the release of their second album Glitch Princess via Bayonet Records with a track titled "My Name is Nat Ćmiel"—released at the end of 2020.[14] The full album was released on February 4, 2022. It was qualified as "pioneering" by Colin Lodewick from Pitchfork and featured in their 'Best New Music' section with a critical score of 8.3.[15]

In between "My Name Is Nat Ćmiel" and Glitch Princess, Ćmiel released the remix EP Serotonin X Remixes and the covers album Nuclear War Post X, the latter issued directly through their website as a limited edition paperback art book with a download for the entire album.

Personal life[edit]

Ćmiel graduated from Central Saint Martins in London for a degree in Fine Arts in 2020.[16] They are non-binary.[17]
