The Chainsmokers started out in 2012 as an EDM DJ duo consisting of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart. Since this duo has risen to the scene, they have churned out a total of five top ten hits (Paris, Roses, Something Just Like This, and Don’t Let Me Down) and one number one hit; Closer).
The Chainsmokers’ music fuses streams of indie, dance beats, pop, hip-hop, and expertly crafted electronic soundscapes into cool rifts of smoking sound. To start off 2018 on an interesting note, the duo has chosen to go down a much darker path with their new single ” Sick Boy”. (See: Chainsmokers on Beatport: The Chainsmokers).
This song, and some of the other songs they plan to release in the upcoming future, address, from their perspective, the political climate that a majority of the people from their own generation are facing and have faced as they were growing up. It relates heavily upon the rise of social media and the effects it has had on the youth around the world. It addresses several of the repercussions that social media has had since it began such as: creating a basis of social acceptance that most people otherwise would not seek out on such a scale, eventually elevating some to the lead of social hierarchy.

Compared to The Chainsmokers type of songs in the past two years, this is an entirely new path, incorporating aspects of how dark everyday life can be with their already outstanding talents. It is quite the twist considering the previous tracks that this duo and their partners have released, but it is definitely one that will make waves all across the music world. As in the past they have worked with the likes of, Daya, Charlee, Halsey or XYLO, they are very excited about their upcoming partnerships, although they will not release the details on who they are quite yet. It will definitely be a huge year for these two, they have extraordinary talent and plenty of aspirations to fulfill going forward.
