Just a few weeks ago, the worldwide sensation – The Chainsmokers released their song ‘Sick Boy’ which is already topping charts all over the world. While the duo, consisting of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart have previously released songs that people can dance to and enjoy, the new songs that the pair has started releasing have demonstrated a darker side of the music that they are producing. The song is also giving fans a glimpse of the other side of The Chainsmokers, demonstrating the hardships in life that they go through and the conditions of society in the present day.
The history of how the duo was formed was one of the themes that are highlighted in the music that the duo is now set to release. Both the members met each other while working under the same manager, and immediately clicked and started working together. Even though the music that they are making now may be on everyone’s playlists, they had to encounter a number of challenges along the way. This experience taught them that not everything in life is always cozy, and it is all part of the journey that can one day lead them to a good position within the industry.
DJing has always been a big part of the music that the duo creates. In the past, most of the music that was being released was made by them, while they relied on the work of lyricists and vocalists to fill in and make the song more relatable. To them, the music that they created wasn’t just a couple of notes that people could dance to. It was something that people would find relatable and applicable to their lives. However, as society changes and their fan base grows up, the need to change the style that they went in for was imminent. They also felt like they wanted to demonstrate more of who they are, which is why the new song features the duo, with Drew singing the main vocals of the song.
This darker theme that The Chainsmokers has now taken on has got the industry, and fans wondering – what is next for the new and evolved Chainsmokers.
