Are you into high-rhythmic movements? Do you like to listen to music that is high in tempo? How about songs that are full of melody? If you answered yes to some of the questions, then you’ve surely heard about The Chainsmokers. This group/duo is composed of two members, and they were brought together by a manager named Adam Alpert. Since the inception of the duo, electronic-dance music has seen a resurgence in activity thanks to the duo’s dynamic range in producing music. Alex Pall is one-half of the duo, and he already had plenty of disc-jockey experience. The other half of the duo is Drew Taggart, and he interning at a prominent record label. This match seemed to be destined for greatness as both figures shared the same interests.
In 2012, the two individuals got started by making remixes, which is very popular with this specific style of music. The remixes were for indie music and the band got its foot in the door by collaborating with Priyanka Chopra, Indian actress. This collaboration introduced the world to the somewhat hit song “Eraser.” Between 2013 – 2014, the band had found its footing and started doing live performances. Released in December 2013, “Selfie” became an instant hit, and it put the band on everyone’s radar. After a string of other chart-topping singles, the band had become a household name. “Roses” was a huge commercial success, and it thrusted the band into the limelight. This up-and-up trajectory has continued to this very day.
Reflecting the moment is something that The Chainsmokers does very well, and its new single epitomizes this notion to the fullest. “Sick Boy,” the band’s new hit, is a lot different and is a lot darker than the previous singles of the past. As of now, The Chainsmokers are riding high on success from this distinct sound, but who knows exactly what’s in store in the years to come.
