How To Dress Well

A lynchpin of the ‘ethereal R&B’ genre, producer Tom Krell, aka How To Dress Well, has just set the internet agog with word of his second long player ‘Total Loss’. Due for release in autumn via Weird World, it will mark his first full-length since 2010’s acclaimed ‘Love Remains’.

A just-published preview of the LP, ‘Ocean Floor For Everything’, is a track of two equal parts, setting its first phase’s eerie scarcity against the dense splendour of its latter half. And, as if to suit its title, Krell contrives a lo-fi quality so sunken in its abyssal synth basin that you half expect a vast, silvery sea creature to glide by as you listen.
