British label LuckyMe has unwrapped an early Christmas present as part of their yearly advent calendar. It’s not the cheeriest of gifts, but the unreleased track from How to Dress Well is still a pretty little thing.
“Tomb for Anatole” was picked up off the cutting room floor during the recording sessions for 2012’s Total Loss. As such, the song is heavy with the heartbreak heard on many of the album’s final tracks. It plods gloomily along, a slow march with Tom Krell’s mournful lyrics keeping pace. However, chiming guitar work and light swirls of electronics give the impression that wherever it’s trekking is at least cut with sunlight. Fitting, as the name “Anatole” apparently comes from the Greek word for “sunrise.” Take a listen and/or download the song for yourself below.
