TRACK REVIEW: How To Dress Well – “Ocean Floor For Everything”

Written for DIY

How To Dress Well is not, unsurprisingly, a musical project fronted by fashionistas Trinny and Susannah. It’s the stage name of Tom Krell, a Brookylnite with a set of pipes that would revered just as much by Justin Vernon as R Kelly. ‘Ocean Floor For Everything’, the first song released from the forthcoming Total Loss LP, is typical of Krell’s minimalistic, ethereal R&B sound, and is typically gorgeous. The singer hits otherworldly notes and is joined mid-way through by a some crunching drums and hype-man “heys!”. If the xx and their heartbreaking soliloquies leant a little more towards Aaliyah, it’d sound like this.
