Hailing from Finland, The Fair Attempts produces music that’s a refreshing blend of hard and gritty Industrial Rock, with a variety of electronic music styles that are commonly known as Electronica. The merger of genres (including EBM, Darkwave, and Synthpop) perfectly facilitates the expression of lyrical themes that are typically dark and uplifting at the same time.
The Fair Attempts was founded in 2018 by Friendly Timo, the one man behind the compositions, lyrics, and audio engineering. The first collection released, Indoctrination, was experimental as Timo sought to create electronic music that’s gritty and edgy, but pop and dance at the same time. The project helped him discover what he felt was the true core and soul of the music of The Fair Attempts.
The first EP by The Fair Attempts, arisTotal, was released on February 8, 2019.
Friendly Timo was a founding member of the industrial metal band, The Cyan Velvet Project, from 2000 to 2008, when he chose to put his music career on hold to care for his wife, who has Multiple Sclerosis. Throughout the following decade, he continued to make music and released some royalty free music in a variety of styles.
