Absolutely dumbfounded by the visuals in How To Dress Well's new vid for "Suicide Dream 2". Nightmarish and ethereal, it brought to mind the likes of Watership Down crossed with James Gleeson's art further distilled to their bare bones. Lifted from the Can't See My Own Face: The Eternal Love 2 EP, it's brimming with hushed R&B melodies coupled with black/doom atmospherics. I wanna get lost in this and never find my way back.

How To Dress Well - Suicide Dream 2

From Tom:

"hey--- i wanted to give you this video as a premiere for r.q. it's for our song 'suicide dream 2' and i made it on my cell phone. stoked to announce that a 10'' of 'suicide dream' and 'suicide dream 2' will come out soon, with an amazing remix (i don't think I can say much more about label, remixer just yet, but it's SOOO DOPE). i'm writing this message from schiphol airport in amsterdam--- back to europe after spending some time in san francisco working on the HTDW full length (hopefully by summer!). so that's 3 releases coming soon: 7" of 'ready for the world' (lefse), suicide dream 1&2 10", full length. thanks for getting in touch. so much love for your love."

We feel you.
