The Chainsmokers recently released a new music in collaboration with another famous artist, Halsey. They dubbed their song ‘Closer’. The band is based in New York and their main reason for featuring other musicians is to spice up their recordings with the musical diversities that the other artists bring to the table. Some of the benefits include getting more experienced songwriters, DJs and vocalists for a personalized performance unlike producing singles.
During an interview, the Chainsmokers, Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall got to express some of their views about their musical experiences. According to Alex Pall, being a DJ has always been his passion since when he was a kid. So he had to quit dance music to dedicate more time for Djing. On the other hand, Andrew Taggart started working with Alex Pall while still in college. They made it to fame through connections by Alex’s manager, Drew and constant commitment to their musical goal. Additionally, they both had to work closely with Drew for music production and gigs where they could go and perform sometimes. They dedicated most of their time to the music as well as defining their originality. Above all else, they respected the core values they had put forward as a team. To avoid feeling monotonous, they often invented new ideas for their music career.
Alex Pall believes that contextualizing their career to being electrical musicians and DJs gave them a platform to record more music of good quality. Their creativity makes their music unique every time they have an album debut. Interestingly, Alex and Andrew also sing about their real-life stories such as relationships and other sensitive topics. Unlike other musicians, they develop the lyrics themselves such that their songwriters only do a little piece of the work.
For the Chainsmokers, featuring Halsey when releasing ‘Closer’ was an amazing experience. They got attracted to her breathtaking vocals and that really helped in growing their music. What’s more is that their music has gained so much popularity due to their presence in social media. Most of their fans access their music through Instagram. As of now, the Chainsmokers have fans across almost all continents.
