Alex Pall Reveals His Dedication to Music

Standard

Interview Magazine conducted an interview with Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart of the Chainsmokers. This music duo powerhouse discusses their humble beginnings, their work ethic, and their dedication to creating music that will continue to connect with an ever-growing audience.

Starting out as DJ’s, they have evolved into developing music that has become more personal for them and their audience. While most of the music in the dance genre tends to be focused on producing hard beats geared toward young club-goers or rave fans, The Chainsmokers have made great strides in offering their audience music that appeals to those who also enjoys pop music, indie, and hip-hop. In order to stand apart from the crowd, they began writing lyrics that merely reflected their own experiences in life.

The pair met in New York City. Pall explains initially, he was doing a number of gigs DJ’ing and he also had experience with social media, whereas Andrew’s main talent was producing. After they met, they immediately began working together and doing so for long hours. Their dedication to creating has allowed them to be almost two years ahead. The songs we are just now listening to, are songs they wrote over a year ago.

The song “Closer” features Halsey and Andrew Taggart singing. Pall indicates his enthusiasm working with Halsey, describing her as incredible. He also shares his appreciation for her voice and unique style. The inclusion of Taggart singing is just one of many steps initiated by this duo to continue their unique style, while still garnering the interest of a wide audience.

Pall uses social media to connect with fans and learn more about who they are. He’s learned that the audience has grown from a youthful college crowd to an even younger crowd and now also includes older people. There is an excitement in developing music that appeals across so many different identities.

All about the Chainsmokers

Standard

The chainsmokers have only been around for about three years, but they have received several different rewards and millions of loyal fans in the short amount of time. They have always created music that relates to what people go through in their everyday lives such as romance and broken hearts, but they have decided to change it up a little, and their new music has a darker feel to it. They wanted to bring something new to the table in hopes that people could relate their new music.

Their new song “Sick Boy” was inspired by the darkness of this generation, and some of the struggles people go through. They created the song through their anger in what they were dealing with in their fame. People see Alex and Andrew through who others say they are, and through what they see. Their next album is different and their next couple of songs will have a darker vibe than their past hits. Sick Boy takes you through many of the struggles through this generation such as anxiety and self identity. It also goes through the struggles of everyone relating to others on social media. It is an empowering song about staying true to yourself and doing your own thing in a generation full of so much negativity and judgement.

The Chainsmokers have had hits that have been in the top music charts for weeks. They have also worked with many great artists such as Daya, Halsey, and coldplay. Their top hits include “roses” “something just like this” “paris” “Don’t let me down” and “closer.” Closer was number one on the chart for thirteen weeks. They are hoping to reach a wider variety of fans with their new music, and they’re hoping that their fans can relate to their darker music
