The 25 tracks on Yellow, conceived as a double album from day one, were self-recorded steadily throughout 2015-2017 at various locations. Much of the material was derived from what the band called The Scorpion Suite, a state of mind reached only by the alternative version of Naomi Punk they call The Scorpions (disambiguated). Many Scorpion Sessions were conducted by The Scorpions, each member performing their predetermined roll in a project half-aspiring to the register of licensing music, half-aspiring to musical novelty.
The self-referential musical language of The Feeling (2012) was wrung out into the starker, live-informed Television Man (2014). On Yellow this language becomes a means, not an end. Integrated into the album are glimpses of live recordings, sounds of equipment being pushed around, hard rock sample libraries, sounds of the flapping wings of the album's host ("I Found My Angel Wings" is embedded in thematic variation throughout), windy field recordings, emulsive synthetic woodwinds, a busted car stereo, a few four-track acoustic ballads, and more than a few puzzles and jokes.
Much of the record conjures this notion of the undoing of 'society', at least in a western societal sense, and its supercession via the natural world; the revenge of Mother Earth.
