You and I was a late 90s screamo band formed from the ashes of New Jersey local group Instil and Sky Falls Down [http://www.yourbestguess.com/oldsite/roster.html Your Best Guess Records website] ] . While they maintained the heavy, chaotic elements typical of the genre, their music has traveled well in terms of influence due to its more tuneful and musical qualities. While other bands in the genre often simply played fast, You and I had a very solidly inventive rhythm section and two guitarists who were able to add interesting textures and interplay to the music, incorporating riffs that recalled midwest emo, tech metal, and almost every other punk subgenre; often while holding down vocal parts at the same time. While You and I were by no means the only screamo band to integrate clean vocals and layered harmonies, they did it in the context of what were often atypical song structures, particularly on their final CD, "The Curtain Falls", which was released in 2000 by Level Plane Records. You And I played their last show on May 8th, 1999 with Saetia, Carlisle, Cable Car Theory, and Stormshadow [http://members.aol.com/IDefy5/youandi.html You And I Homepage (defunct)] ] in the basement of Thursday vocalist Geoff Rickly's New Brunswick home.
