How To Dress Well – ‘& It Was U’ [Listen]

Tom Krell works under the name of How To Dress Well, and two years after his wonderful 90’s R&B-indebted debut LP Love Remains is due to release Total Loss – an album he says created during a time when he was “very unhappy and confused.”

This dark train-of-thought isn’t evident on the surface of thing in ‘& It Was U’ as Krell swears earnestly “You don’t have to worry / My love will be there for you” throughout in the typically sparse arrangement of his. Half-way through we’re treated to a delightful twist when muddy, tribal-esque processed beats engulf the track and takes it into a warped ballad territory.

It’s not particularly indicative of the whole album in terms of content, but sure as hell is in terms of quality. Download the track via NPR.
