It’s been two months into 2018 and “The Chainsmokers” are back in the limelight. The EDM duo, who dominated the airwaves of 2016 and 2017 with hits such as “Closer” and “Something Just Like This”, have a new release. Producers and members Alex Pall and Drew Taggart, had a big couple year; winning a Grammy Awards with their dance tune “Don’t Let Me Down” and becoming some of the biggest names in EDM music.


This year, however, after nine months of no new music, they decided to take an artistic turn. They are saying that their new single “Sick Boy” is the beginning of their darker style of music that they are going to work on. In an interview with Forbes Magazine, Drew Taggart (whom has taken up singing as well) said about their new song “The next topic is a little bit darker, but I think that’s the tone of society right now. Our stuff is always a reflection of what’s going on in our lives and the world around us.”


This interview can highlight a strength of Chainsmokers, they have always kept current with the culture and times. At this time in the United States, things are different, tensions are high, and the duo is trying to capture this sentiment. In the interview, Taggert then goes on to discuss the frustration that the song portrays and how he things fame has changed him, “You become this thing that isn’t actually who you are as a person, and it’s hard to get around.” In many ways this new sound reflects some of the other generational angst by artists such as Twenty-One Pilots.

It will be interesting to see how the whole EP is perceived upon release, but Taggart makes it clear in the interview that this will be an entire project, “We’re going to keep them coming. We have a lot of stuff we want to say, a lot of new music.” The jury is still out on how the public and critics perceive this sound, but there is no doubt the duo is being creative.

It all started when two DJs from the Northeast met up and The Chainsmokers officially began. Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart were both successful in the nightclub world and making a name for themselves when Taggart heard about Pall looking for a partner. He made the trek from Maine to NYC by bus to meet him. The two men instantly connected and began working on music together. Since they officially became a band only four years ago they have already seen remarkable success.


The Chainsmokers top hits to date include “Don’t Let Me Down“, “Roses”, and “Waterbed”. The duo just released their newest song “Closer” which is sure to be a success like their previous singles releases. Pall prides himself on either writing their own lyrics or being heavily involved in the writing process. They don’t just want to make some music and let someone else fill in the words. Each song they write has personal meaning and substance rather than a song pumped out by a random songwriter. The difference is clear in their unique sound and message.

Dedication to the quality of their music, lyrics, and performances is just part of who Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart of The Chainsmokers are. Expect more from them soon.
