Mathias Rosenzweig got a hold of the New York EDM/Pop DJ group, the Chainsmokers, shortly after they just released their anticipated single “Closer.” The Chainsmokers are made up of only two members, DJ Alex Pall and producer Andrew Taggart. “Closer” features electro-pop star Halsey and Taggart makes his singing debut on the track. Rosenzweig started off by asking the members how they started collaborating. Pall explained that a former member was about to leave the group for undisclosed reasons and his manager’s friend had found the perfect replacement in 2012.

Andrew Taggart was an aspiring music producer and was interning at Interscope Records during college in Syracuse, New York. He was just starting out in DJing scene and had put several songs out on SoundCloud and did a few college shows before joining the Chainsmokers. When Taggart came to New York City to meet up with Pall at an art show, they instantly knew from the get-go that they would work well together. Taggart stayed in Pall’s apartment and they started producing new tracks for the Chainsmokers. They both felt that they didn’t need to fit into a certain mold in the electronic dance scene. The two would unabashedly mix dance, hip hop, indie, pop, synth and more genres into their music and it led to chart-topping hits, awards and more.
As the Chainsmokers blown to mainstream stardom their audience, who were originally made up of mostly college kids, now had people of all ages and from every corner of the globe. The two had to change up their live shows as their audience got bigger and better. They now spend almost as much time as making music by helping their visualist develop original content for their live shows. The Chainsmokers have already toured the world several times around and are due for another.
A number one hit single band, “The Chainsmokers”, have released many popular songs in the past 2 years. Songs that you may know that have been heard on the radio like, “Paris”, “Something Just Like This”, “Closer”, and “Don’t Let Me Down”. There was a lot of pressure on the band to create new songs for the new year.
Taggart and Pall have decided to take on a new route, creating a much deeper darker feel for their fans. As a band, they have created the magic with the new song they released, “ick Boy”. Although it took them a while to create a new song, they had to talk to their record label company about it before they could release.
The Chainsmokers like to make songs that go with modern society, in other words, what is currently going on in today’s world. However, making songs for people is frustrating because they have to deal with the critics. Artists have to go through the judgment even though they have put great creativity into it.
The Chainsmokers are an American Band who originated from New York. They are a quite popular band that have received awards for their musical talents. Their music consists of you using your imagination.
To better explain their new song, “Sick Boy”, it is a trip to the doctor’s office and the sickness is being questioned, in other words, identity crisis has been faulted by society and the great social media exposure. They explain that narcissism is a necessary evil but it is needed to communicate with people today.
The Chainsmokers are going in a great direction with their career, eventually, they could make a living creating music for the people. It has reached many radios like in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, UK, Germany, to France.
Just listen to their new song because it is like walking through a haunted house with its eerie music. It is a different take on celebrity culture. It is a great song! It has just been released to the public along with its own music video. If you continue to search their content you will see that they have many songs with videos as well.
I think that the Chainsmokers have a great voice and their music is carefully crafted and beautiful. They are like the new generation of our time. The piano, guitar, drums, and vocals all go together to create this piece of music. With that said, they even took the lights and created live visual effects with graphics to show you exactly what they are trying to tell you.
Their new single, “Sick Boy”, is a great song and I recommend that you listen to the song on Vevo, Youtube. Also, they have their other songs on the website as well. You can discover new songs by, “The Chainsmokers”, on YouTube.
