Singaporean songwriter and producer Nat Ćmiel, aka yeule, has released their new track ‘Inferno’ from their upcoming alternative album Softscars.

Following up their previous releases ‘Ghosts’ and double singles ‘Dazies’ and ‘Fish In The Pool’, ‘Inferno’ finds yeule lamenting over a relationship, incorporating burning analogies to describe the intensity in their heart.

While the track’s blazing title might indicate a heavy sound, the single is light and experimental. ‘Inferno’, according to a press statement, was born from a journal entry, which yeule often refers to as a scar entry.

Speaking on the track they note, the artist shares: “The song is a gash, scar no.9. In this scar I ask the blue flame in my heart, will you ever fade? When you are engulfed and eaten in blue, what was left of me were parts of you.”

By setting their inner musings to cathartic punk riffs and ethereal electronics, yeule crafted their new full-length project, Softscars. The album follows their critically acclaimed 2022 release, Glitch Princesswhich was ranked as one of GAY TIMES’ best albums of 2022.

Softscars is out on 22 September via Ninja Tune. Listen to ‘Inferno’ below.
