TRACK REVIEW: How To Dress Well – Cold Nites

Written for DIY

How is it that the sexiest music – R’n’B slow jams – is sung in a way that suggests the male singer has been castrated? Ah, the mysteries of life. Tom Krell teases us a little more with this preview of new album ‘Total Loss’, lamenting the lonely evenings of the title and complaining – in the most tuneful way possible – that he’s “tired of waiting” (“Tell me what I gotta do!”), atop some gorgeous, glacial production; it’s like someone playing wine glasses whilst a hip-hop beat intrudes from a party down the hall. Definitely not castrated.
