about

The single is a hypnotic explosion of radiant pop melodies soaked in 80s synths and pulsating percussion. Built around the vocal sample of frontwoman Meredith singing the song's title, "You" has a delightful Swedish feel to it. Hints of Robyn and Röyksopp can be heard throughout, along with a touch of Ladytron, but there's an air of originality with the unique sample, engaging instrumentation, and Meredith's energetic vocal style.

This is one of those songs that makes you want to get up and dance no matter where you are.

lyrics

The screen door slams
That’s how the radio plays
That’s how the radio plays
And my dress sways
That’s how the radio plays
Sends me far away
Because you catch me off guard
All alone, all alone in my car
Yeah you catch me off guard
When I hear those first few bars, those first few bars
You catch me off guard
All alone, all alone in my car
Yeah you catch me off guard
When I hear those first few bars, those first few bars

And I’m frozen in time
With your voice on the line
Saying “when you’re old”
Saying “when you’re grey”
Saying how you always knew things would go just this way
Saying “when you’re old”
Saying “when you’re grey”
Saying how you always knew things would go just this way

Are the ghosts in your eyes?
Are the ghosts in your eyes like they are in mine?
Are the ghosts in your eyes?
Are the ghosts in your eyes?
Are the ghosts in your eyes like they are in mine?
Are the ghosts in your eyes?
