Where his recent utterly-brilliant track ‘Words I Don’t Remember’ went for atmospheric R&B, Tom Krell’s new one ‘Repeat Pleasure’ has a more upbeat pop feel to it. It’s the second song from his “What Is This Heart?” album, announced today for release on June 20th by Weird World.
The album was inspired by Prince, Lou Reed, Burial and Tracy Chapman and apparently “delves deeply into the core of the psyche and touches on themes of isolation, loss and existential anguish, but in the end finds redemption in the infinite possibilities of love.”
It also purports to “celebrate the possible healing power of American pop music” and ‘Repeat Pleasure’ has a bit of Britney Spears covering Chapman feel to it. I don’t know, after a good few listens, it’s almost too bright and shiny sounding.
