新加坡電子音樂藝術家《yeule》病態可愛造型,迷幻空靈拼貼出日系氛圍

這篇要分享的是近期小眾音樂圈中相當火熱的音樂人 - 來自新加坡與倫敦的電音製作人兼知名模特兒 Nat Ćmiel 於2012年開始打造的 yeule 是將大量夢境氛圍聲響(Ambient)、些許當機感的拼貼元素(Glitch)以及實驗風格融入日系的流行電子中,歌聲帶有歌德式的空靈冷豔氣息:

自幼學習多種樂器,從鋼琴到吉他、爵士鼓,學生時期也待過爵士樂隊,並在之後參與許多音樂創作。而如此吸睛的獨特風格,是在14-17年發佈三張EP後逐漸成形。

如今在2019年的多首新作MV搭配完美符合 yeule 音樂風格的全新造型與視覺呈現,成功獲得新一批樂迷的大量關注。加上年底釋出的首張專輯《Serotonin II》正式於全球小眾音樂圈中大放異彩。

yeule is a parallel sphere to connect to when low on power
yeule is a cut in dimensional fabric
yeule is a disappearing space
yeule is loading…

名稱取自人氣電玩最終幻想(太空戰士)《Final Fantasy XIII-2》同名角色的 yeule 開始不斷演繹著獨特造型 - 讓眾人印象深刻、五彩繽紛的實驗性眼妝(星際感的銀色雙眉、眼淚圖案)以及另類胭脂、刺青圖騰、鬼魅氣息的瞳孔放大片等等,都成為她駕輕就熟的icon,同時也正呼應著之前在日本紅極一時的 yami-kawaii(病態可愛)浪潮。

在《Pretty Bones》可以看到 yeule 唯美地玩弄各種食物的精緻畫面,搭配拼貼氛圍極佳的音樂,是光哥最喜歡的一首;YouTube上擁有最高點擊數的MV《Pocky Boy》則是看到 yeule 打扮成鬼魅造型的不良高校生。從名字開始就總是帶有電玩風格,也反應在多部MV中,更有畫面崁入了知名遊戲平台 Steam 的對話窗。

帶有 Cyberpunk 意味的《Pixel Affection》以及電玩配樂氛圍濃烈的《Poison Arrow》均是相當推薦的曲目。本張專輯所收錄的12首曲目中,最後一首《Veil of Darkness》呈現了實驗噪音,小眾風格的定位相當鮮明:

不喜歡用言語表達的 Nat Ćmiel 用 yeule 的樣貌及聲音,創造出一系列特異獨行的好作品,並以這些虛擬形象與創作做為紓發情緒的窗口。帶著與世隔絕的孤立感闡述著人性黑暗以及豐富情緒的同時,也創造出她獨到的藝術價值。在第一張正式專輯發行後 yeule 已經被越來越多的樂迷發掘,令人相當期待之後的發展。

it feels like ive been waiting for eternity, to bring Serotonin II to life, but i finally did. to be able to show you all the inside of my head, the peaks and troughs on this journey, through all the tears it was at these points where I wrote and wrote and wrote. I felt truly personal and intimate with this one. I produced and wrote every track on Serotonin, still unknowing to where it all came from, but it's like a black void I reach into and can sometimes see. it was u guys who kept me writing through my lowest points and you've always been there to support the art. im truly grateful and am so honoured to let you hear it. I really want to share my love and thanks to @bayonetrecords, @beachfossilsnyc, for taking me under your wing, supporting me and believing in this project, @iamkatieg for finding me lurking in the shadows of the internet, @stefanie_satana and @itsmejmg for your undying support and love, thank you so much @thomdenson for all the work you put into the yeule project and @emmy_mullen for sticking with me even though im manic, my manager @ericjustinchen for putting the order in my life and being a guardian angel. i wanna thank all the directors who signed off their souls into each yeule music video, @joyxsong @t.obs @raw2.2 @mitchdequilettes , you put so much love into the visuals and it really meant so much to me that it meant so much to you. thank you so so much @neilkrug for catalysing some incredible imagery of yeule from our imaginations combined, thank you @misomochichan for sticking around the studio, and thank you to all my friends (especially my best friends @lunaikuta , @josephnichol , @chi__yn , @wwjweijiewang) on the other side of the screen, for digitally holding my hand through everything. u can stream / listen to Serotonin II everywhere. X , yeule
