Watch the “You and I” video at NPR

“New York singer-songwriter Margaret Glaspy‘s “You And I” is one of the year’s best earworms, with a simple but irresistible guitar riff that can wind its way deep in the brain and camp out for days. Now comes a new video for the song, with equally striking visuals that are both plain and potent. “I don’t want to see you cry,” Glaspy sings with a Mona Lisa smile, as she ambles through a monochromatic landscape. Each moment, from a picnic to a studio photo shoot and a nail salon, is shaded in its own single vivid color.” – NPR’s Robin Hilton

“I wrote down the idea for this video on the back of a set list,” Glaspy tells NPR Music via email. “Six weeks later, I got off tour and stepped into an elaborate world created by [director] Christopher Good and his crew that was based on that scrap of paper. In making the video, I knew that we weren’t going to make anything too directly narrative. The lyrics and meaning of the songs don’t belong to me anymore. You make records so people can have their own experience with them. It felt like a good opportunity to lighten up a bit and use my imagination visually.”

Watch Margaret perform “You and I” on Conan:


Glaspy has earned early praise from The New York Times, Stereogum and NME. Rolling Stone hailed her “hot barbs of electric guitar,” and VICE Noisey love her “complex, deceptively heavy riffs with vocals that really stand out and grab you at the throat.”

“In a lot of ways, it’s kind of how I operate,” says Glaspy of her debut album’s title, Emotions and Math. “I’ve always considered myself a free spirit, someone who goes with the flow, but actually I’m not exactly like that. This record really taught me that I’m super analytical and process-driven. I think they really do go together, emotions and math. Nobody is just one thing.”
