Once again, The Chainsmokers make the news after a recent interview with Alex Pall. After only two years, the DJ/Producer Duo has become one of the most successful in the world. Since the release of their top 10 song Roses in 2015, they have consistently proven to be the experts of the Pop EDM world. They have won 24 awards at several awards ceremonies, including a Grammy in 2017 for Best Dance Recording.

After not releasing anything new in the 8 months between the lyric video release of Young in June of 2017, The Chainsmokers have come back with a new sound that is darker and more of a reflection on society than ever before, with their new song Sick Boy. It’s lyrics about the effect of social media on their lives is chilling, but their openness about who they are is refreshing.

If you have never heard of The Chainsmokers, or haven’t closely followed them, they first broke into the limelight with the song Roses two years ago. A year later, they released Dont Let Me Down, which hit number 3 in the US. That same year, they released the #1 hit song Closer, showing the world that they are the hit-makers.

This has all culminated to their new album, which currently has no release date. But so far, the duo has released four songs from the album which have gotten over a quarter billion views together in less than 5 months. Sick Boy alone has gotten 175 million views, and speaks to the younger generation, who have become trapped in a social media run world. The song speaks truth about how narcissistic and negative we have become in our life hiding behind a screen, and is a refreshing breath of relief among songs that beg for more fame, or that complain about how hard it is to be rich and popular. The Chainsmokers have hit a balance between upbeat dance songs, and a close look at society, and plan to develop this sound further in their upcoming album.

Alex Pall grew up DJ-ing in New York City as more of a hobby than anything else. He loved dance music and his passion drove him to pursue this hobby to fruition. It didn’t start out as immediate success, not until he met Andrew Taggart (Drew) and it was Taggart’s self-proclaimed “love at first sight” that rocketed Pall and The Chainsmokers into success. Alex and Drew immediately started worked together after meeting, with Alex quitting his job and Drew moving to New York from Maine. It seemed to be the jump worth making for both. The two were a perfect match from the get-go, changing the dance music scene with innovations like adding lyrics to a dance track and with the DJ performing lyrically on a track. Alex Pall describes working with his track mate as more of a feeling they both have than some way of working that can be written down and replicated. The two discuss and discover themselves together and this often occurs during late night conversation.

Alex Pall cannot pinpoint exactly what it was about Andrew Taggart that caused him to quit his job and give dance music a real go. He knows, though, that it was meeting Drew and quitting his job that lead the Chainsmokers to their real start. The start, is just that to the pair, however. The Chainsmokers seek to constantly change and adapt themselves to what their fans and listeners want to hear. Alex Pall does not limit this idea to just the music, but to The Chainsmokers live performances as well. Pall and Taggart describe the change in their concerts from a college rave with limited attendants to full blown concerts where the attendees expect more than just a DJ behind a green screen. Alex and Drew take these changes in stride and look forward to the changes they will have to make to their own self-identity to stay in the forefront of the music industry.
