For two straight years, The Chainsmokers have turnt up the radio with hit songs. They popped on the scene in 2015 with “Roses,” and things took off from there continuing for months at a time. Who are they? Alex Pall and Drew Taggart produce memorable tracks and have had a duet with Coldplay, “Just Like This.” As they remained commanding the music tracks they immediately became an instant hit with music lovers.
Their normal electronically driven songs have now taken on a darker side and gaining followers. Their single “Sick Boy,” launched a list of supporters and is moving strong.
The dynamic team is setting their sights high and doing what feels best to them. Giving an exclusive interview before a concert, Taggart says its been awhile since their new song. It took about nine months. They strive to stay in the moment and keep their songs current. He adds that the duo has matured over a course of time and is ready to dive into some new territory. The goal in their music he says is to stay in touch with society, keep up with what is going on and affecting people.
Taggart explains the creation of “Sick Boy” was a bit difficult at first. They wanted to stay true to themselves and didn’t want to be what people were writing about them, especially when people can write about them and get it wrong. Alex chimes in to state that the duo has standards. He says the fans have really embraced “Sick Boy” and they are gearing up to give them more in the albums to come.
However along the way, they don’t want to lose themselves of who they are and create music thats not real. Alex says they’ve accept the challenges they face because they strive for perfection in their shows and in their music. It can sometimes give them anxiety but its worth it in the end. Taggart elaborates that they push one another to keep the pace and avoid laziness. They want people to hear what’s in their heads and enjoy the music. On their Grammy nomination, the duo says they are humbled greatly and are very proud to make music that people can relate to.
