Project Description

To coincide with the re-release of Six.By Seven’s seminal second album ‘The Closer You Get’ on February 17th 2017, Beggars Arkive commissioned ShortForm’s director Alex Mannion-Jones to produce a documentary ‘The Dream Is Sweeter Than The Taste’.

Despite their unique sound, their huge popularity in the music press, endless touring and the efforts of the label, the hype never quite broke through into mainstream success. However, Six. By Seven frontman Chris Olley has always kept the fanbase alive and developed his own ways to distribute music outside of the industry.
