When the time came that the money he makes from being a DJ is higher than the one he is making from looking after the art gallery, he decided to pursue a more serious career in the music industry. His present manager handled him, and it was also the one who introduced him to Andrew Taggart, who was also a DJ Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart became close friends because they share the same passion. Their manager had the idea to combine their talents and thus, The Chainsmokers was born.

How The Chainsmokers are Turning the Page

The Chainsmokers have evolved quite a lot since their founding in 2012. Believe it or not, they first found big fame in 2015 when their hit “Roses” claimed its place on the Top 10. Although, most also remember the hit from 2014 entitled “Selfie”. And since then, their fan base has grown exponentially, and they have expanded the field for today’s rising artists. The Chainsmokers music style is a vast and ever changing combination composed of dance, hip-hop, pop, and indie. And to add to all of that they just released a new single this year called “Sick Boy”.

In an interview with Hugh McIntyre they speak of what may have inspired that single, and how it was brought to life. Drew Taggart explains that typically they release more music at sporadic but also constant times because they like to be current with all the compositions that they create. That gives their music more listener value and interest as well. Taggart also goes on to state that he feels “Sick Boy” is the start of a new chapter and that the duo is moving forward and turning the page for something new. He sheds a little light on the meaning of “Sick Boy” and the darkness within it.

Taggart then says, “The next topic is a little bit darker, but I think that’s the tone of society right now. Our stuff is always a reflection of what’s going on in our lives and the world around us.”

Taggart also begins to explain that he also wrote the song because he was becoming frustrated, and that he is angry because he feels that he has become a distortion of his true self. Then he states that this is in part because of the current world. Society encapsulates themselves in social media and anyone at any given time that shares bits of information can be misunderstood and misinterpreted. The darkness of “Sick Boy” is a representation of those with assuming minds and also a depiction of what’s bad around the world today.
