The Darker Era of the Chainsmokers

Having been on the music scene for a considerable amount of time now, The Chainsmokers is a name you should be familiar with, even if you have never heard their music. First breaking onto the music scene in 2015 when their single “Roses” passed into the top 100, the following couple of years saw them release song after song, all of which end up earning high amounts of airtime.

In the beginning, The Chainsmokers started out as being simple hobbyists. Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart seem to have lived very similar lives even before they met. Both were very interested in producing music and DJing; it wasn’t until after their introduction that they began to see the possibility of making it to the “big time.” The first notable song that they released was “#Selfie,” which earned its place more for its comedic value (even though it didn’t make it onto the music charts), rather than any aspect of the song musically. What “#Selfie” did do was get the name The Chainsmokers out there.

The years following that first release has seen many releases by the duo, as stated above. The majority of those songs have been fairly similar as far as the store they convey. According to Alex Pall, their target audience has influenced the kind of music they have written thus far, and in keeping with that idea and as their fan base expands, the tone of their music is changing.

From a duo that typically releases a new song every month or two, the past nine months have seen The Chainsmokers turn rather reclusive. Taggart and Pall say that this period has been a sort of “growing period” for them, as they attempt to hone their music and tailor their next releases to that original fan base. It seems fitting to them that with the state of the world now, their music goes in the direction that the world has. This is why their next releases will be darker in nature, a reflection of the world they live in.
