Last month, How To Dress Well released the slow, sultry crooner “Cold Nites” in anticipation of his forthcoming, sophomore full-length Total Loss (out September 18th on Acéphale/Weird World). Glasgow producer Koreless has gone ahead and nixed the bass and glissando glitter of the original, training our ears on a light patter of a drum-beat and a melody that could have been ripped from a mechanical music box. As for Tom Krell’s falsetto, it’s been pitched down just below immediate recognition, sounding enough like Nina Simone’s trembling alto to make us feel pleasantly confused. Check out the song below, along with a video of Krell performing the song by candlelight at this summer’s Way Out West Festival in Gothenburg, Sweden.
