Tom Krell aka How To Dress Well just dropped a chilling track on his SoundCloud page that will have you feeling feels you’ve never felt. This incredible piano ballad is a cover from a friend of Krell’s, as written the excerpt posted below the track, – “(“Let U Know” is a partial cover of a song by Krell’s friend oFF Love)“. This track has incredible emotion and passion behind it, and resonates well within me, and I hope it does for you too. Enjoy the feels people.
SoundCloud Excerpt: “How to Dress Well today presents a new song called “Let U Know,” a bonus cut from his new album “What Is This Heart?”. Krell insisted that this song come out before his next single from “WITH?” because, as he put it, “in singing ‘Let U Know,’ I discovered the title of my album and a lot of its meaning — I needed this song to be heard by people, even though I couldn’t find a place for it on the album proper. When I made this song, singing over a song originally by one of my best friends (“Let U Know” is a partial cover of a song by Krell’s friend oFF Love), a lot of what I’d developed on “WITH?” just came clear to me — these questions, these relationships with the past and the future, all this love…”
Yesterday, there was a little uproar in the blogging world because one blogger put up a post in anticipation of all of the end-of-the-year lists that will soon be surfacing, and he called it “2010 Bands You Can Ignore.” Immediately following, there was uproar. People saying that he was just trying to produce tabloid-like material to increase his traffic, but that his opinions were unjustified and untrue. The reason I bring this up is because one of the artists on the list was How To Dress Well, a moniker for artist Tom Krell, who is a research fellow by day, singer and producer of lo-fi ambient music by night. If you recognize this song, it’s likely because of two reasons. The first is that How To Dress Well has seen incredible success in 2010. The second could be because the infamous Lil B sampled this in his song, “Why They Wanna Kill Me.”
