Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart are the duos forming a music group called the “Chainsmokers” where their manager is the one who introduced them. Despite Alex Pall attending the University of New York, he used to work as a DJ in the city. After they met with Taggart and started focusing on doing music, he left his job and made music source of paying his bills.
It was in an interview with Rosenzweig and Alex talked about the development of his group. When he was asked how he feels to work with Halsey in their new song “closer,” Alex said that Halsey is an incredible person. Even if you had asked them over about the artist that they could want to work with, Halsey could still be their best on the list. This is because Pall describes her as a unique and cool artist. Halsey is also blessed with a strong voice that is unapologetically and that makes her the kind of artist Alex wanted to work with. It is a song that Andrew and their buddy wrote on their tour bus. The exciting part is that the song is following the right direction and therefore a huge step because Andrew was singing and they are the ones who produced that song and it is something that is not common in the music industry. Having other songs like “Roses” it can be said to be a good step they have done and it’s an identity standpoint.
When Pall was asked how he feels about being connected with his music, he said that it is a great thanks to the Instagram platform. He can even feel it based on what he has been observing in the social media, because of its now becoming something international and it is making the duos to be excited. They have already noted about a place like South Africa and Philippine and what it seems is that the group is reaching the 16 – 25 demographic. It is a good split between the girls and the boys as he thinks.
The Chainsmokers makes music for them and it becomes exciting because everyone is now enjoying especially if they find the emotional person who connects to their songs.
