Just lately, the Chainsmokers published “Closer. ” Unlike their previous singles, the rising hit exhibits Andrew Taggart (part of a duo with Alex Pall) singing. Although an artist singing on their track seems to be self-evident, electronic music typically relies on songwriters and vocalists to add that soul. Pall and Taggart are working to reveal themselves more and more, spinning closeness into a style that is oftentimes empty of passion aside from the euphoric-like drops. The pair reviews their origins, the latest single, and how they strive to advance with their increasing audience.
Alex Pall mentioned that starting away he DJ-ed growing up as a pass-time for him in NYC. Ultimately, he appraised that dance music was engrossing his life, so he determined to give it a decent go. Drew was introduced to him by his manager and from then on they were burning the midnight oil so to speak, and now look where they are.
Taggart recalled sitting on the tour bus one night with Alex as they got the motivation for “Closer. ” Whilst listening to Dashboard Confessional and these nostalgic tracks, we kind of traveled back those emo days at age 14. “Damn, we miss songs like this.” Fuck it, why don’t write about the things which happen to all of us, announced Taggart. He actually remembered being in Syracuse with these extremely rich girls he was infatuated with. Soon after getting to know them and sleeping with them, the magic wore off. “I wanted to write a really unsexy sex song.”
Pall says that they’re forever changing their live show to fit with the expanding audience. Obviously now, with a song like “Closer” coming out, having Drew singing is drastically going to alter their performances. Usually, their music is live, which they’re satisfied oversteps the typical DJ. He talks to their visualist every day about creating new arrangements and crafting their own ideas. “It’s the sort of hustle where if you get satisfied somebody else takes your spot, ” Pall described. So for them, it’s about kissing the edge and giving people a breath of fresh air. “We make music for ourselves, and it’s really exciting that everyone else is enjoying it, ” concluded Pall.
