“You were hopin’ for the days when you could say safely I have my place, I have my home, I have my future/But we never really plan for the worst of things do we?”

It’s hard to make a touching and emotional song with constant use of reversed tracks, but if there’s one person who can pull it off, it’s Tom Krell.  On his latest single, “Ocean Floor For Everything” Krell, stage name How to Dress Well, takes his heartbreaking R&B to the next level.  Using just his voice accompanied by some well placed pianos and drums, Krell creates an environment of depth and despair; a relationship that that can’t move forward.  It’s a song of sinking down to the bottom of the ocean and looking up, looking back to where he started sinking as the light reflects off the ocean waters.  It’s a beautiful and ghostly track.  Total Loss, his second full length is due this fall.  If you’re looking for the best moody falsetto R&B around, look no further, you’ll be listening to this one on repeat for a while.

-M. Kauf

P.S. If you want more, I highly recommend his Just Once EP
