Who is How To Dress Well?

Moving to Europe

 

“I think it’s a paradox goal that I did a lot of my most important experimenting with music over there because I was feeling pretty stultified by the old land Europe. I was like, ‘I gotta find this place in my imagination and to really push frontiers.’"

 

How To Dress Well: “I came up to New York for four years. Then went to Germany for a year. After Germany, I went to Chicago where I’ve been for two years. At the end of May, I moved to Berlin for the last four months. I had an opportunity to be out there. I played some shows in Europe.

“It’s funny. When I was living in Germany for a full year. I realized that I am such an American. I really, really miss America. There are things about Berlin that you can’t capture anywhere else. Like real European things. Just the outdoor lifestyle. The public lifestyle. Everybody is out in the parks all the time drinking wine. Berlin is infinitely more relaxed than any city in North America. But, I also really missed the diversity of America. Just the newness of our country is super important to me. I don’t think people realize what it does to youth culture. When there are 300 year old buildings around you all the time. There’s a reason Rock-N-Roll music happened in America and not in Germany. I think it's because we live in a young world over here. There’s a possibly to do fresh new things in this country that I didn’t see as a possibly in Germany.
