Though it seems like people say this about every new One Direction video, this time, it feels particularly true: In "You & I," the boys look like grown-ups. Niall's got a brave new hair style, and even squeaky-clean Liam has a full beard.
Hair aside, the slow-moving video feels like a Very Serious follow-up to "Midnight Memories" for them, and this is despite its vaguely hilarious premise: A solemn-faced Louis, Liam, Harry, Zayn and Niall morph into each other while strolling down a boardwalk.
For all its washed-out body-morphing weirdness, the vid is definitely interesting, and there is a tiny bit of color at the end in the form of a bright purple ball. (We'll let you guys deconstruct the meaning of that one for us.)
