Alex Pall Talks About The Struggle For Identity in Chainsmokers Interview

According to Alex Pall, the New York based DJ who forms one-half of the hit group the Chainsmokers, it is all about the struggle to become artists. Sitting down in an interview the Interview Magazine Pall and cohort Andrew Taggart explained the uniqueness of their music. The two have been steadily gaining popularity since the release of their breakthrough single “#Selfie” in 2012. Their latest work has been stirring up quite a hornet’s nest of speculation.

Since the 2016 release of charting single “Closer” Andrew Taggart has been providing lead vocals for songs. The duo has also become more involved in songwriting, and their music now contains references to their real lives within its lyrics. As most DJ’s in the EDM spectrum create electronic soundscapes out of other people’s music, obviously this is a bit peculiar. Pall explained it as a journey of self-discovery, and an attempt to remain interesting and engaged. “People connect to a our music on a deep level” the artists explained, “And we want to be part of that”.

The duo described their formation of album concepts, explaining to Interview Magazine their process. “You feel the pressure of an album,” Pall begins, “fans want it and so does the label, but we do not want an album of 10 or 12 songs that have nothing to do with each other.” Pall continues by describing a typical DJ album, around six good songs, a few dance records, maybe an interlude, and about three actual singles. According to Pall the group has reached the point where an album should be a related body of work, illustrating who they are cohesively.

It is pretty easy to understand where Alex Pall is coming from. EDM music is mostly beautifully organized sound tapestries. DJs rely on other artists to provide vocals and words. This is why songs within the genre sound a lot alike, and why there are seven remixes of the same source material floating around. The only way to become relevant in such an atmosphere, is to poke some holes in the wall and push boundaries.

The Chainsmokers Are on a Streak of Hits

The Billboard Music Awards honored Avicii, Swedish producer and DJ along with The Chainsmokers and Halsey. Alex Pall and Drew Taggart told thousands who attended the event in Las Vegas that Avicii is an artist that has inspired so many people in many ways.

Halsey also commented that it was a pleasure to have the opportunity to work with him and that the whole situation is a reminder that mental illness is a struggle for many.

Taggart dedicated the award to Avicii and also reiterated what Halsey said about him being a good influence.

Unfortunately, Avicci died at age 28 when he took his own life. Unreleased music of his still may be released according to president of Geffen Records who the late star used to produce his music.

The Chainsmokers are in a streak of hits and have just released their “Sick Boy” song. The catchy music video for the song got over 136,000,000 views and had a memorable and captive sound to it. Perhaps the song has become such a hit due to the live instrumentation, or Drew’s Vocals.

In February their song, “You Owe Me,” reached #4 on the Hot 100 Singles chart and is a dark and shocking sing with over 34,000,000 views on YouTube. It took just one month. Their video for “Closer” got over 2 million views in February and was released in July of 2016.

The Chainsmokers are not slowing down anytime soon, and in March their hit single, Everybody Hates Me, got over nine million views in under a month. Not bad for just an audio track.

The iHeartRadio Awards was another bright highlight for the duo and Taggart and Drew received awards for Dance Album of the Year, Dance Artist of the Year, and Best Collaboration.

At the Ultra Music Festival in Miami, The Chainsmokers performed six new songs integrated with their commercial hits, electro mashups, and hard dubstep to get eth crowd going.

The duo has broken the mold and is continuously pushing the limits of music, and that is just one of the reasons why their fans love them.
