HOW TO DRESS WELL ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM, "WHAT IS THIS HEART?", OUT JUNE 24 ON WEIRD WORLD. HERE IS HIS LATEST MUST-HAVE, DREAM-DRENCHED, R&B JAM, "REPEAT PLEASURE"
From the time Tom Krell began posting free music as How To Dress Well on his now-defunct blogspot, I have had the repeat pleasure of being stunned by his shimmering, assured, subtly dark, yet always brilliant songcraft. In the time between then and now, Krell has emerged as a leading voice in the neo-R&B movement that sprung from children of the '90s merging the introspective, loser-sprung refrains of "Creep"-era Radiohead and "Teen Spirit"-era Nirvana with the platinum R&B smoothness of Janet Jackson, Sade, and TLC.
Whatever the genre—let's spare ourselves and not even suggest one—How To Dress Well transcends demographics by making pure, simple, layered, beautiful pop songs. His latest, "Repeat Pleasure," demonstrates his ability to do so at his best.
