The seemingly unstoppable duo of Alex Pall and Drew Taggart who together, make up the EDM /Pop Duo group, The Chainsmokers, are continuing to go full speed ahead in their efforts to drop massive pop songs. They have a handful of hits already under their belt, and won a Grammy with their recent hit featuring Daya, “Don’t Let Me Down”. To think that they have accomplished all of this, in only a few short years. Naturally you would think that they are feeling the pressure so many artists before them felt. The pressure to continue to rise. The pressure to continue to make hit music. To captivate fans with your beats and lyrics. Surely they have to be feeling the pressure? The duo has recently released their brand new single, “Sick Boy”, and it is already getting the attention of everyone.
“Sick Boy” gives you a glimpse into what is to come from The Chainsmokers. A darker side from the pair that we haven’t yet seen before. There was a significant gap between single releases before we even heard “Sick Boy”, which is something that was a bit foreign for The Chainsmokers, considering they usually had new songs coming out every few months, in this case we waited nine months for the new single. Both Alex and Drew agree that this new chapter they are embarking on musically, is going to be a bit darker than what fans are used to. They have always made it a point to have their music reflect what is currently going not only in their lives, but in the world around them.
So as we impatiently wait for more new music from The Chainsmokers, they’ve made one thing very clear. The music will sound different, in a good way. The same high quality production we’ve come to expect from the pair will still be there. What we will gain along with that is a new perspective into the minds of Alex Pall, and Andrew Taggart. As they give us an opportunity to peer into their minds, and a chance to gain an understanding of the world as they see it, with every new track.
