The Evolution of a Sound
The Chainsmokers released “Closer,” a track that had been highly anticipated by the EDM community. “Closer,” also threw a spotlight on Halsey. Many fans were surprised with the performance of Andrew Taggart singing on “Closer.” EDM stars usually just do dance beats and never leave behind their DJ setup. However, things have changed, and rather than letting someone else do their vocals and instrumentals, Taggart and Pall feel it is part of expressing the vibe of their music to be the ones writing and singing their lyrics. Of course, the Chainsmokers have been working to perfect their soundscapes for a while, and that is probably why their song “Selfie” was such a hit since it is something people can relate to.
Expressing a Personal Message to Fans
The reality is that Taggart and Pall are forming an intimate bond between the Chainsmokers and their fans. Taggart mentions that they want to express to their fans what is going on in their lives. The only way to make their message come to life is to convey the emotion of the changes in their life thru the lyrics they write, the sounds they create and the shows they produce. Pall and Taggart look forward to expressing more and more of themselves as their fan base grows.
Creating a Personal Sound
How does a duo who have never met one another work it out to create hit tracks that people can relate and communicates a personal meaning? Alex Pall says he and Taggart’s relationship as a creative duo went thru a metamorphosis. First, there was a common consent among each other in accepting what each had to offer, then there were the long talks about what each other liked musically.
Becoming an Ambitious Artist
Alex Pall mentions they were both very ambitious in becoming artists. Lastly, they both had good work habits and worked ethic. They didn’t waste time but were concentrating on what they wanted the sound to become and what their message would be.
Undying Work Ethic
Alex Pall said they would get together and like stay together in the studio for 10 or more hours a day. Nor was there time together like a job, but it was something more than a job. It was like crafting a sound into something you were proud of playing and becoming.
