In June 2014 we took a holiday to Happisburgh
(pronounced ‘Hazeborough’) on the Norfolk coast.
We stayed in the lighthouse cottage with views
over wheat fields to the sea.
The beauty seemed tinged with some sadness, as
the cliffs revealed protruding pipes,and the beach
was strewn with weathered and broken bricks,
roof tiles and crockery from houses lost to the sea.
This area has some of the fastest coastal erosion in
Europe. How long until the lighthouse itself is claimed
by the sea.
All of the photographs were taken there, and some of
the music started to take shape whilst sitting at the foot
of the lighthouse looking out to sea. The rest was written
and recorded during 2014 at home.

Yellow6 is the solo project of British guitarist Jon Attwood. Yellow6 has at times been described as post-rock, minimalist,
electronica, ambient… the reality is that Yellow6 has some similarity with each of those genres but is not so easily definable, using aspects of drone, repetition, melody, harmony, noise and silence to create absorbing soundscapes to drift off into...more
supported by 39 fans who also own “closer to the sea without moving”
Sublime work from start to finish. Disc 2 on the limited edition is a slice of acoustic heaven. Overall probably my favourite Yellow6 release and that is saying something given the quality of competition over so many years.
Bravo Jon, I love this direction you have taken. as always I am left wanting more.
Beautifully presented and packaged by the ever reliable Sound in Silence label. Will
