How To Dress Well, while an unlikely figure, embodies all things great with ’90s R&B. His sound is brilliantly nostalgic with a twist of modern sensibility. His second album Total Loss is on deck, and we are due for a peak into what exactly it is going to sound like. That brings us to “& It Was U”, a lo-fi, melody-driven tune that, at first, had me thinking I was tuned into a throwback radio program. While Tom Krell’s voice isn’t the strongest we have ever heard on an R&B record, it has a knack for crafting incredibly catchy hooks. You will know exactly what I am talking about after you give this sucker a listen.
