Mar 24, 2023An album that leaves you in a different environment than where you entered it, ‘YIAN’ will surely rank as one of 2023’s most impressive British debuts.
Mar 24, 2023A remarkable debut album, Yian's reflections on growth cement Chua's identity as an artist capable of deeply personal, honest, and beautiful music.
Mar 24, 2023The ten songs that emerged from that process are a compassionate exploration of selfhood that rewards patience and resists easy answers.
Mar 24, 2023Chua creates landscapes out of the hollow spaces within her. Each track becomes its own kind of home, or at least a safe harbor.
Apr 6, 2023The record often flows nearly-imperceptibly from track to track, creating a sort of ecosystem all its own, which harkens to its deep ambient undercurrents. But, hanging together as it does, like a morning mist, YIAN is a bit of a soggy, homogenous listen.
Mar 24, 2023Bathed in a heavenly glow, it’s easy to let these songs wash over you, but Chua’s soothing vocals invite us to lean in and listen more closely.
