Jon Attwood started Yellow6 as a solo guitar project, initially inspired by space-post-rock, electronica and reverb soundscapes. Yellow6 has released nine official albums, a myriad of singles, and several compilations and remixes. There have been over 60 live shows in Europe and North America since 2001.
English post-rock band, Bark Psychosis, got Attwood interested in sounds rather than riffs and introduced a whole new way to play guitar. From there came experiments in drone guitar, cavernous reverbs and discovery of the still young world of post-rock. Attwood was at that time relatively unaware of the shoegaze roots of post-rock: Slowdive and Seefeel and Slint and Cocteau Twins, so he followed his own path slowly discovering others along the way, like Tortoise and Mogwai.
In October, Yellow6 released Closer To The Sea Without Moving. Have a listen to the track “Looking Back Towards The Sea” below.
