Apparently, How To Dress Well is coming to my neck of the woods tonight, and I may go check the show out. Just heard about them/him today, and it kind of falls into the The Weeknd/Frank Ocean/The Inc. vibe, which at times, I can deal with.
How To Dress Well is actually one person named Tom Krell. His brand of ethereal R&B and beats have been going over well with the indie crowd, and from the few tracks I’ve heard, I can probably get with it. However, “Ocean Floor For Everything” immediately hooked me — the beat drops, the claps start, the “hey” refrain is overlaid some nice, lilting vocals, and it’s creates a great dissonant yet harmonic blend with some nice rough edges. I liked this song a lot.
It’s taken from his latest album Total Loss, of which I will be checking out shortly. What do you think about this track?
