During the past few years, electronic music has taken the limelight of the music genre of the decade, and one iconic duo who stand at the center of this is The Chainsmokers. Comprised of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart, the pair has created a mark on the electronic music industry and has carved out the niche that has benefitted them incredibly.
Like all artists, Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart did share their own set of struggles while trying to establish themselves. Trying to stand out in the music industry by themselves was tough, but when brought together, they were able to create music that would captivate the world. The duo was brought together by a typical manager in the beginning and instantly connected with each other. They shared the same tastes in music and also both had the same journey that led them to become DJs. After putting their skills to the test, they were able to come out with a few original pieces that would catch the attention of big record labels.
Ever since coming together, The Chainsmokers have come out with a number of worldwide hits. One of the first songs that the duo released was Roses, which instantly become a global success. Seeing the popularity of their songs, they decided to create further more music that would stand out, and which would set them apart. In an interview, Alex Pall claimed that the lyrics that they write and the songs that they sing are always reminiscent of the current scenarios that they are facing. People who are listening to these songs are therefore able to understand and relate to the music, having had similar experiences as them. Through this style of music, The Chainsmokers have been able to connect with the audiences that tune into them.
The Chainsmokers have also gone down alternative routes when it comes to the kind of music that they make. It is uncommon for DJs to sing over their music, but The Chainsmokers broke that mold by featuring their very own on some of their tracks like Closer and Sick Boy.
