You And I About
You And I were a five-piece screamo/emo violence band from New Brunswick, New Jersey that were active from 1996 to 1999, and briefly reunited in 2011. The band’s poetic lyrics, over-the-top vocals, as well as melodic sensibility proves that chaos is more than them. They were more in the realm of bands like Saetia, with constant loud/quiet dynamics, occassionally spoken vocals, and heavy guitars. Their songs would often explore numerous ideas, adding to the passionate intensity they played with, and when they hit a climax, the result is the equivalent of a group of guys crying on the floor with pictures of their ex. And that sound is sweet. And relevant to what most of you will be spent this day doing. Dismiss it as a meaningless holiday, but there’s no denying it’s a day to wallow in pity parties and exaggerated sorrow. It’s as cheesy as how she liked her pizza.
