In the short amount of time since Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart formed the group in 2012, under the management of Adam Alpert, The Chainsmokers have made a name for themselves. They first made their live debut in September of 2014 at Terminal 5, where they opened for Timeflies. Held in Hell’s Kitchen, Terminal 5 is a small venue with a capacity of 3,000 people. Earlier that year, the group had re-released their first single, “#Selfie” through Dim Mak Records, which would eventually receive international attention and peaked on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Songs chart.
Since then, The Chainsmokers have released one studio album (“Memories…Do Not Open”), three EPs (“Bouquet,” “Collage,” “Sick Boy”), and several hit singles. Recently, their single “Closer” hit one billion streams on Spotify. In March of this year, The Chainsmokers became the first Dance Artist/DJ to top a Billboard 100 list, hitting #1 on the Billboard Dance 100 list.
The Chainsmokers released another single earlier this year as part of a series of monthly releases leading up to their second studio album. The single, entitled “Somebody,” is part of their upcoming album, Sick Boy EP. A few days after its release, Alex and Andrew posted a video on Facebook giving some insight into the way they composed their hit song. In it, they show that they increased the singer’s pitch, this due in party by the voice having been originally recorded for a different song.
The music video itself reflects on the layering that occurs in The Chainsmokers’ compositions: the video presents a single canvas painted over to depict different scenes of entertainment throughout history. Upon completion, each scene holds for only a few brief moments, before being painted over again. The video shows The Chainsmokers’ ability to experiment and grow as artists. Fans and critics alike will wait with bated breath to see what is in next in store for the young EDM duo.
