Yeule shares video for new track ‘sulky baby’

The musician has also announced they’ve signed to Ninja Tune.

Yeule has dropped their a new track entitled ‘sulky baby’, alongside an accompanying video. Today (Wednesday 10th May), they’ve also shared the news they’ve recently signed to Ninja Tune. It’s their first new music since their 2022 single ‘Too Dead Inside’.

The Singaporean musician (real name Nat Ćmiel) explained they keep journals that they refer to as ‘scars’ - the genesis of ‘sulky baby’ arose when they read their old journals out loud.

“‘sulky baby’ was like a 2000s alt-rock shoegaze hybrid tinted in sad satire,” they explain. “I felt like I was talking to a younger version of me, stopping her from crying, looking back at the ways I betrayed and neglected that innocence from myself. I failed to protect her and I felt like I needed to go back in time and fulfill what she was starved of. So that she could return to my side. So that I can smile like a little kid again.”

“The song gives quite vivid descriptions of a depression I felt with almost a burning passion, yet I tried to give it a light-hearted tone. I think romanticizing is not always that bad. It helps to do it sometimes when you’re dealing with a repressed memory. I think it is called an advantaged delusion? Sometimes, that’s the only way I can remember parts of me I don’t want to remember, so that I can lay her to rest and heal. My mother used to tell me as a child, not to sulk all the time. I guess that’s why sulking is so special to me.”
