Out Now: Lucinda Chua – YIAN

London-based artist Lucinda Chua releases her debut album YIAN alongside feature track ‘Something Other Than Years.’ 

The track finds Chua enlisting friend and fellow genre-defying, post-classical artist Yeule for the album’s closing track, a gentle song about searching for guidance.

Building on the warm, elemental soundscape of 2021’s Antidotes EPs and the moody, elegant timbre of her cello, Chua self-produced and engineered eight of YIAN’s ten tracks, spurred on by a call to true artistic integrity and authorship. A deeply introspective and fully realised vessel of creative expression, YIAN emerges as less an album than a worldview, a commitment to learning and uncovering one’s own selfhood honed over Chua’s lifelong reconciliation with her own personal history and identity.
