HOW TO DRESS WELL
Garnering inspiration from a broad range of artistic, cinematic, philosophical, and musical sources How To Dress Well, aka Tom Krell, creates music that is provocative and compelling. At the heart of each song there is a chorus of disarmingly beautiful vocal lines that are as angelic as they are harrowing. His voice seems to swell up out of nowhere, the multiple tracks colliding with each other to form stirring, otherworldly harmonies, overtones, and distortions. His mysterious lyrics are delivered through striking vocal melodies as Krell experiments with his exceptionally wide vocal range. His work presents us with a complex and difficult sound that is somehow still immediately approachable: Krell’s compositions are abstract and yet unmistakably pop and r&b, are alien yet in no way alienating.
