The Chainsmoker’s Release New Single of Their Most Reflective Era of Music Yet

Get ready for The Chainsmoker’s newest era of music as they take on the topics and subjects of the dark world they find themselves creating music in. In February 2018, the DJ production duo released “Sick Boy” their first single in 9 months and is just a taste of what is to come for the popular pair. In an interview with Hugh McIntyre from Forbes Magazine, Drew Taggart–one half of The Chainsmokers– discussed the reasoning behind “Sick Boy” and the style of their new and upcoming album. Taggart explained their music has always been a reflection of the trends and problems happening in the world around them and that is how they’ve always wanted their music to come across. He explains “Sick Boy” was written out of anger and frustration as he watched himself become a caricature of who he actually was.

The Chainsmoker’s, an East-Coast DJ and production duo started creating music together in 2012 after Alex Pall and Drew Taggart were introduced by a mutual friend and coworker in the music business. Since then the two boys have released numerous hits starting in 2015 with their Top 10 hit single “Roses.” After that release the boys became unstoppable for the next few years churning out one Top 40 single after another. Their most notable pieces include collaborations with the likes of Coldplay in “Something Just Like This”; “Closer” ft Halsey and a 12-week #1 on the radio; and the grammy-winning dance jam “Don’t Let Me Down.”

Although the duo have obviously turned to a darker style of music, their fans are already one step ahead in the support of this new style and era of The Chainsmokers. An era that will be filled with meaningful pieces that intend to reflect the feelings, emotions, and thoughts of Pall and Taggart, as well as the world, friends, and fans that surround them in all of their successes.
