The Chainsmokers- DJ Duo on the Rise

If you have not heard of The Chainsmokers by now, it’s time to leave the rock you have been under. Though, it is a bit more understandable considering they’ve really only been on the top charts in the past two years, with breakout hits like Roses and Paris. But you can’t tell me you haven’t had “Closer”, their song with Halsey stuck in your head before.  So baby pull me closer in the backseat of your Rover….  

Starting off 2018 with a bang, the duo dropped their new single  Sick Boy  on January 17. This track is vastly darker and more complicated than their previous hits, though that’s not to say their audience did not love it.

“Make no mistake, I live in a prison That I build myself, it is my religion”

While most pop hits these days talk about fame as a treasure they happened upon, or the burden they are faced to bare, The Chainsmokers acknowledges their fame (and the downsides to it) was carefully crafted and is solely their responsibility. Along with the song, the artists dropped the  Sick Boy  music video.

The Chainsmokers is a DJ duo created by Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart. Their first breakthrough was with the song  #Selfie  (you know…  Let me take a selfie… ) in 2014 which was easily a top twenty track in multiple countries.  Don’t Let Me Down  was their first top 5 single from the album Bouquet (2015), which also won the pair a Grammy Award. Their most recent album is Memories…Do Not Open (which features  Sick Boy ). The duo has only just begun their music career in top 40, and has already blown everyone away. Their songs feature a great mix of pop, dance, and edm. It’s refreshing to see something so serious as Sick Boy  but still be able to dance to and enjoy it. If you are looking for a music group to watch this year, I would highly recommend The Chainsmokers, as this duo has so far to go still.
