Dream Catcher is back with the final part of their nightmare tetralogy (or quartet) concept. The group has received a fair amount of interest based on their nightmare/horror concept, back from their debut single Chase Me and following onto Good Night and Fly High. You & I is the group’s final comeback as part of the nightmare concept and it is the title track off their second mini-album, Escape The Era.
You and I, from the very first second, manages to climb to the top of my favourite tracks from the group (and it may possibly climb to the top of my weekly charts posts). I loving the opening verse, with its eerie sound and their crisp clear vocals. I question the use of the modern doorbell sound at the very start, as I think a older sound doorbell would be more fitting for the song. The pre-chorus is when the song really starts to be promising. The build-up and introduction of the electric guitars really tells you what is to come. One amazing and hyped up chorus with an amazing rock instrumental that stays true to their roots. The rapping steals the show shortly after, with the song slowing down and becoming much softer, showing great contrast between the chorus and the said section. I also liked the falsetto, which added a nice touch to the bridge. Overall, another smashing song from the group.
The music video was unlike any of their previous music videos. I really thought the video was well produced and everything felt really defined. I like their use of visual effects (namely the green screen) in the video, which made it really intriguing to watch. Following the nightmare concept, the video seems to touch on another dimension. And it has horror aspects that were sene in some previous videos. I am not sure how they link up at the moment but the plotline of the 4 videos will be the subject of a future post.
I love it how there isn’t any messing around with the performance. It is creepy, powerful and seductive. All three occurring simultaneously in a span of 3 minutes. Really liked the incorporation of the handkerchiefs and that use of the cane (I love and am perflexed about how it appeared).
