Alex Pall is Excited About the Growth of the Chainsmokers

If you’re a fan of EDM an you will no doubt have heard of the Chainsmokers. The creative duo burst onto the music scene in 2014 with their hit “#Selfie.” The Group has been gaining traction ever since becoming a staple of the EDM-pop genre.

In 2016 the duo, consisting of members Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart released a song titled “Closer.” The track was highly anticipated as the Chainsmokers hadn’t released any recent music up to that point. The track was an instant radio regular gaining a feature from pop star Halsey.

The track also signaled a change in the duos musical direction. As DJ’s neither Andrew or Alex usually record vocal to their well crafted hypnotic beats. They usually rely on songwriters and vocalists for that element of their songs. However, Andrew is singing on their track “Closer.” The two hope to be recognized more as true artists in the near future. They want to be more than DJ’s that fans couldn’t pick out in a crowd with them standing behind a DJ booth.

Alex and Andrew met when their manager, who at the time was only managing Alex, introduced them. the two realized they would make a great team after realizing they shared the same fiery passion for creating music. The rest is history.

In a recent interview Alex Pall spoke about how he feels about the duo establishing their identity and how their music will most likely evolve. When asked why the duo have begun recording vocal to their tracks Alex replied “Well, why not?” But on a more serious note he explained that he and Andrew wanted to make the music more of a personalized experience. Though they work with songwriters they don’t just have them craft all the lyrics. They work closely with them, guiding the songwriting process and sometimes they write all the lyrics.

The Chainsmokers Enter A New Chapter In Their Music With “Sick Boy”

While some people think The Chainsmokers have been around for quite awhile they’ve actually only achieved mainstream success in the past two years. Their first hit was “Roses” which released in the first quarter of 2015. They’ve had a number of successful hits ever since. This DJ dance band is comprised of Drew Taggart and Alex Pall. Some of their hits are “Something Like This” (for which they partnered with Coldplay), And “Closer” (with Halsey). They have also won a Grammy with their hit song “Don’t Let Me Down”.

When a band like The Chainsmokers has a big string of success like they have there is pressure to keep churning out similar material. Their music is a mix of Top 40 pop along with EDM to this point. However, for their latest single they decided to break out and do something different despite this pressure. Their latest song is pretty dark which is actually appreciated by most of their fans. This latest song is called “Sick Boy” and it was released as a single in early 2018.

Alex Pall and Drew Taggart were recently interviewed just before they had a concert in New York City. They said that “Sick Boy” is marking a new chapter for their music. Drew Taggart said that they have grown quite a bit as artists in the past few years as well as people. He said that the tone of his generation is a bit dark right now and their music reflects that.

The Chainsmokers first live performance occurred in September 2014. They opened for Timeflies. Prior to that they had released their first single, “#Selfie”, for free. This song was picked up just a month later by Dim Mak Records who released the song a second time. “#Selfie” charted in countries around the world and proved to be their first breakout song. Alex Pall has said this song changed their lives and put them on the map in the world of music. They followed this song up with “Kanye” which was also a big early success for them.
