How To Dress Well – “& It Was U”

By Corban Goble / September 5, 2012

How To Dress Well’s Total Loss is out later this month, and today Tom Krell delivers the joyous “& It Was You,” a spare, thumping R&B cut that finds Krell harmonizing with himself, pulling his voice further forward than ever. Even though people are pretty quick to draw the line between How To Dress Well and ’90s R&B (Sade, Maxwell, R. Kelly and so forth), his older stuff typically refracted those influences through more moody, hazy, personal textures. That changes with “& It Was U,” which is about as pure of a pop song as I’ve heard from the project. Download it below.
