"Valey set out to build an intricate musical world with Yemas and it is well worth a visit." - Bandcamp Daily

"[A] fusion of ethereal melodies, poetic writing and a whole range of textures and tones, layered over one another in translucent layers like ghostly strata of bygone times...Yemas is continually shifting, never settling into an easily-defined shape." - Various Small Flames

"The Portland based artist builds her powerful compositions from the ground up, paying close attention to the interplay between looped choral vocals and intricate instrumentation." - Tome to the Weather Machine's Best of 2019

"A kind-hearted ghost that emerges gracefully from textured mists." - Autumn Roses

"With calculated stagger and lean might, PDX’s Indira Valey is a true Drunken Master in vocal acrobatics, her playfully unassuming baritone delivery but a red herring of a focal point, casting abstract symbols down below to get colored in, obfuscated, and all but obliterated under the ensuing tidal wave of her enchantingly chanting Fursaxan/Sacred Harp-ian choirs, bells, tribal rhythms, and barebones electric guitar accents all frolicking in a swirling hertz-o-sphere of crystalline treble." - Jacob An Kittenplan, Cassette Gods

"Fans of Julianna Barwick, Circuit des Yeux and Ian William Craig should take note." - Tome to the Weather Machine

"Like a collection of séances more so than a collection of songs, Yemas taps into that natural ancient elemental aura, weaving gossamer atomic threads and connecting them via symbols and runes, a pagan call to action, or at least to attention and remembrance. This incredible celebration of life and physical and mental connection through secret and universal language fills you with its magic and its joy, lifting you from an existence marked with meaningless drudgery into a realm where so much more matters...you might even come out the other side forever changed in some way." - Ryan Masteller, Cassette Gods
