How To Dress Well.
The wait has finally come to an end: September 18th
will see the release of How To Dress Well’s second
album Total Loss. We met with singer Tom Krell
for an interview in Berlin.
Musical history and heartfelt experiences.
How To Dress Well has been the pseudonym of Chicago-based singer, songwriter and producer Tom Krell since 2009. And when the wondrous sounds of Love Remains (2010) put him firmly on the map of all things pop, he silenced the last remaining references to sartorial guidelines triggered by his moniker. A great favourite among fellow musicians, Krell prefers a subtle and quiet touch, crafting gentle R&B with an experimental indie slant and a few generous slivers of pop. Just as diverse as Love Remains – and created between Brooklyn, Chicago, Nashville and London – the album’s current successor, Total Loss, continues this exciting emotional journey through the depth of musical history and the singer’s own heartfelt experiences.
What began as a string of anonymous releases on a blog has now become something that turns heads and hearts around the globe, tweaked to fit the song format by this likeable singer-songwriter. Never scared to unveil his innermost feelings, How To Dress Well’s latest release takes us through Krell’s own, gradual learning process – and his grateful appreciation of all the things he has been through on the way.
Now splitting his time between his true love - music - and studies of philosophy, we catch Krell during a brief spell in Berlin where he takes time out from his dissertation to write new music, regroup a little and explore the city’s club scene.
