There is a musical group known as Chainsmkers. This group was founded and consists of Andrew Taggart and his Partner Ales Pall. The two musicians formed the group shortly after their manager Adam introduced Alex Pall to Andrew Taggart. Alex started playing music when he was a teenager. He was born and brought up in the New York City. It is in the New York where his musical career grew.
In an interview, Alex explained their collaboration with Taggart and the band. He said that they have succeeded and learned a lot from their partnership. Alex grew up as a Dj, something that he loved so much. He had a lot of passion in his Dj’s path and he did not realize that it was his career. He did it just for fun and out of passion.
When the time came to visit the music gallery, it is when Alex realized that he was talented in music and it was a good thing to consider that career. This is when he met with Andrew and they decided to give it a trial.
During the interview, Alex explains how confidence he was, and he knew that the music industry would work well on their side. They had had a serious discussion with Andrew and there was no doubt about their success. They both had a passion for music and they were determined to grow musically. He said that after realizing the ambition and clear objectives they had for music, they had to venture into the music industry. They were keen to observe what could be the challenge that could affect them. They also kept noting the good things that would work well for them.
After making their decision, it was a good idea to get a musical identity. Musical identity could help them pay their daily bills, and therefore it was a career and a job to them. After a short while, they had gained a lot of confidence from their fans. These fans could even relate their musical ideas in different manners. Due to that, these young musicians were very happy and proud of themselves.
In conclusion, Alex and his friend Andrew were motivated by their career and they worked hard and better to be rated by their fans.
The latest release from the pop group The Chainsmokers, “Sick Boy”, has a darker, more sinister sound than what we are used to from Electronic Dance Music powerhouse. The lyrics in past hits for the duo of Alex Pall and Drew Taggart have always hit on current issues both personal and social, and the lyrics to “Sick Boy” are no different. Their latest release though, sounds angrier than the songs that put The Chainsmokers on the map.
Originally The Chainsmokers consisted of Alex Pall and DJ Rhett Bixler. When Bixler left in 2012 Pall was introduced to Drew Taggart by their manager Adam Alpert. At the time they were mainly remixing songs from indie bands, until in the same year they collaborated with Priyanka Chopra on the single “Erase”. Since then it’s been a series of one hit after the other.
The Chainsmokers can never be considered slackers. Their fans have gotten used to them putting out a new song almost every month. “Sick Boy” though was released nearly nine months after their last release. The work they put into it shows where they are musically and personally.
When asked in a recent interview by Hugh Mcintyre why the lyrics to “Sick Boy” are noticeably darker than past songs, Taggart responded, “Honestly, frustration. A little bit of anger”. “Sick Boy” is about the social media world we live in and how it has created legions of narcissists. Lines in the song such as…
“Feed yourself with my life’s work. How many likes is my life worth?”
…hit at the heart of the frustration and anger felt by Pall and Taggart and anyone else who feels overwhelmed and consumed by social media. Taggart goes on to say “We think about how we relate to the world now with social media, and how much your projecting. You can only tell so much of a story there, too”
“Sick Boy” doesn’t point fingers or make excuses for the evils that social media can create, it’s about how we handle the responses we get when we put an opinion out there.
“Make no Mistake, I live in a prison. That I built of my own religion”.
