The Chainsmokers Interview With Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart

The Chainsmokers released their new track “Closer”, which features Halsey, who is a current star of the moment. This is the first single that features Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall singing. The duo singing in their own song is something new for them. Traditionally most Electronic Dance Music Artists do not sing in their own songs, as they really prefer to focus on the EDM beats. But Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart are singing in an attempt to be recognized by the audience as a duo with real feelings, ideas, personalities, and emotions. The genre is too devoid of emotion, and often is not viewed by the audience as a group of artists, but rather just a collection of EDM landscapes.

Alex Pall was a DJ growing up, and it was his passion, as well as a part time job for him. He had somewhat of a career in New York City going for him, but it was a passion and not a full time career. Alex was at an art gallery when he realized that being a DJ was taking up a significant portion of his time. He was working with a manager that introduced him to Andrew, and that is how the duo got started.

Andrew Taggart was in college when he met Alex. He was a big fan of Electronic Dance Music, to the point where other students would mock him for his passion for that type of music. But later he noticed that those same people now go to many EDM concerts and are a fan of his music today. A few songs on SoundCloud encouraged the duo to keep going, and they also did a few concerts. They really took off into the main stream in 2015 when they released “Roses”. Since then, they are still an elite duo in the EDM genre of music.

The duo launched their first studio album in the year 2017 by the name of Memories, Do Not Open. Apart from winning the Grammy Awards, The Chainsmokers has also won American Music Awards and iHeartRadio Music Awards.
