I got into YOU AND I post mortem. I perused anything associated with Level Plane and stumbled across a band that was the seed for a plethora of phenomenal bands that came out in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
The band had varying styles, but the core sound always remained the same. Wailing vocals, screaming vocals, chilled out instrumental jams, mathy and noodly parts as well as full-throttle hardcore.
Thomas Schlatter gave his opinion of the time he spent in YOU AND I. (full interview will be posted at the end of the year - check back next month for another Schlatter-band, guaranteed awesomeness, every goddamned time)
"We did a reunion show for You and I a few years ago and it went really well. We were able to play the songs much better and as people we are all much more grounded and centered these days. Back when we were a band I was a mess. I was 18 years old and just not really the most stable person. I wasn’t treating myself or the people around me very well. The band was my anchor for that time and I would have been more miserable if I hadn’t pursued it. We played some great shows, wrote the music we all needed to write at that time. People often tell me that they really love the band’s output and it seems to have become the band that is most well known among my projects."
Also check out the interview OPENmind/SATURATEDbrain had with Thomas and his current band Capacities here! Check out this song here from YOU AND I to see the similarities to Capacities.
