The Chainsmokers are currently one of the hottest acts in music. Over the past year, they have released hit records such as Closer and Don’t Let Me Down. While The Chainsmokers normally rely on song writers and vocalists to create the finishing touches along with their electronic beats, they plan to personalize their music even further by contributing as artists to their songs. One half of the duo, Alex Paul, recently spoke on his love of music and how The Chainsmokers plan to evolve in the future.
Pall notes that he spent many years DJing around New York City, though he considered it more of a hobby instead of a career. However, Pall soon realized that music was consuming a lot of his time, so he decided to pursue music as his career. Pall’s manager introduced him to Andrew Taggart. Pall and Taggart began working together soon after and The Chainsmokers were established.
Pall says that there was immediate chemistry. Pall notes that he noticed very quickly that Taggart shared that same love and passion about music. Pall says that he is constantly discovering more things. Pall says that it is important to try new things in order to stay interesting.
Pall notes that singing is what sets The Chainsmokers apart from some of their peers. Pall and Taggart write their own lyrics to some songs. Even on some songs where they rely more on the songwriters, Pall and Taggart are still giving input. Pall and Taggart note that most of the songs are about their lives.
Pall says that social media has been a huge asset. Pall is proud of the fact that The Chainsmokers are becoming popular throughout the World. Pall and Taggart are also proud of the fact that their music is appealing to people in different age groups.
Looking ahead to the future, The Chainsmokers are excited to announce that they will be putting on a festival. They are also planning to combine videos of their live show with their regular DJ show. Pall says that the key to being successful is to avoid becoming complacent.
