EP’s title track is Paste Magazine’s “Daily Dose”. Writer Robert Ham says, “Keep this on repeat while you quietly melt into your office chair.”

ATTEMPT – In The Press
“A bit of Holland-era Beach Boys as filtered through a UFO Club aesthetic. Keep this on repeat while you quietly melt into your office chair.” – Paste
“A satin-draped uncanny valley, a clever evocation of all the plush pleasures of ‘70s soft-rock. It’s just as likely to disturb as delight.” – AllMusic
“Against The Light” (Desperate Spirits, Oct. 27) is the new four-song EP from ATTEMPT, the Lexington, Kentucky-based recording project of Trevor Tremaine, best-known and most-adored as the drummer of the enduring noise band Hair Police.
Beyond that introduction, there’s no use in trying to describe ATTEMPT any better than what Elephant 6 co-founder / The Apples in Stereo front man, Robert Schneider says:
“ATTEMPT is like listening into the future of underground music: 10cc plus Steely Dan playing jazz fusion on a peyote trip.”
Tremaine also speaks for himself, explaining the EP’s nearly-ten minute long title track, saying, “The conceit of ‘Against The Light’ is jaywalking as a metonym for taking a selfish and irresponsible and irrational risk, less for personal gain than to sort of course-correct reality, an act which this song seems to celebrate.”
The song is Tremaine’s first truly collaborative ATTEMPT piece on tape.
“It was built around my vocal harmonies,” he explains. “(Drummer) Dave Farris supplied the layers of Martin Denny (the “father of exotica”) clatter, and Robert Beatty (Tremaine’s co-Hair Police man) detonated the Lydian sinewave fireworks in the coda. On the final version, I patched a take of the full-band live jam from whence this melody sprung.”
“Against The Light,” the latest EP from ATTEMPT arrives on Oct. 27th via Desperate Spirits. Trevor Tremaine is available for interviews. Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
