The Chainsmokers Become The Soundtrack To The Weekend

In 2018, The Chainsmokers have become one of the leading DJ duos in the world with a following of mainstream fans and those who are dedicated to the electronic dance music genre. 2018 has also seen a change in musical direction for The Chainsmokers with a darker sound discovered by Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart to reflect a darker period in their lives. Alex Pall explains much of the darker sound was employed because of the simple fact the album was recorded in the Winter months of the year, but the latest release sees a more fun, upbeat sound employed to reflect the Summer.

“Side Effects” is the latest release from The Chainsmokers and reunites the DJ duo with frequent collaborator, Emily Warren. The contagious tune is a perfect end of Summer anthem and should see The Chainsmokers return to the top of the charts as they continue to create their second album, “Sick Boy.” An EP under the name, “Sick Boy” has already been created with “Side Effects” the fifth single to be released to an eager fanbase.

A popular promo has already been released to accompany “Side Effects” starring Camilla Mendes of “Riverdale” fame. Mendes plays the character of Riley, a hotel worker who is told she must work over the weekend but spends her time in the high-class hotel dancing to the latest sounds of The Chainsmokers.

The release of “Side Effects” is the fifth of the year for The Chainsmokers and comes as the duo are looking to put the finishing touches to their album, “Sick Boy.” “Sick Boy” will follow up the impressive, “Memories… Do Not Open” album which has been awarded gold status in the U.S. and has streamed more than 270 million times on the Spotify service. Anticipation has been building for the release of “Sick Boy”, which will be accompanied by a tour planned to continue from August through November.

The music industry has been taken over by storm with the incredible combination of Alex Paul and Andrew Taggart, also known as, The Chainsmokers. This electronic dance music/pop band’s music consists of singles like, “Roses”, “Don’t Let Me Down’’, and their newest hit “Closer” featuring Hasley. Meeting in New York City, the two DJs have been writing and producing music from day one.

Before the combo met they both were working as DJs and finishing up school in New York. A couple of mutual friends hooked the pair of them together, and from then on was pure magic. Instantly, Alex and Andrew hit it off, bringing talent and vision to the table. The Chainsmokers, from the beginning, have been working day and night together. Pushing themselves, not just for the paycheck, but for the connection they had established with their audience.

At first the Chainsmokers put out a lot of electronic dance music, but as they grew, the band figured out they wanted to expand as artist. Pall states that they both were fans of all types of music and thought they should branch out. So, that’s when music like, “Roses” started to come up. It is extremely imperative to the dynamic duo to constantly be evolving, and to not keep putting out the same type of music over and over.

To continue the Chainsmoker’s evolution of their music, the artists put their own vocals on their newest hit “Closer.’’ Alex Pall explains that singing in their song has brought a much stronger connection with their audience, rather than, just being the guys behind the DJ booth. The song was written about one of the group’s ex girlfriends, and dives into the metal gymnastics of relationships.

Starting out as just a couple of DJs, the Chainsmoker’s journey has been quite an experience. Alex’s and Paul’s tangible connection with their audience, and want to identify themselves as artist, will have this duopoly, making great music for many years to come.
