The Chainsmokers had been quiet for a while. It had been nine months before they released the song ‘Sick-boy.’ The song comes off as being darker than all their previous songs which Drew attributes to the content.
The “Sick Boy” speaks about frustration and pent-up rage. The song is about how people only label you according to labels on social media without seeking clarification. This usually makes an artist feel pressured, and you live like it’s not your own life.
The duo has always been pushing themselves to the limit which has ensured their consistent success for over two years. Topping the charts has not come easily to them though it may look like it was. They got their inspiration from the desire to pursue new horizons in their musical pursuits. Their fans have received the new track with a lot of enthusiasm, and for them, it is a good thing. This is because the entire song was aimed at one thing; enjoying it and having fun while at it.
Andrew and Alex know that the music industry is on the move, continually growing and if one is not careful, a lot of things including music can pass you by. Because of this, they push themselves, coming up with music that one can feel; music that is enjoyable to the audience. The fast-moving industry is frightening but exciting as well because it drives you to be the best that you can and in the process encourages you to step out of your comfort zone and do something exciting.
Pall and Drew Taggart form the Chainsmokers that combines deejaying and production. Their first musical breakthrough came in 2014 with their song, ‘Selfie’ that was on the top twenty charts in many countries. When Rhett Bixler left, the group reformed again into the EDM DJ duo while under the management of Adam Alpert in New York. Pall had been a history and art student at the University of New York when he was introduced to Taggart. Taggart, on the other hand, was a student at Syracuse University and at the same time, an intern with interscope records.
