Not everyone who enters the music industry is able to experience rapid sales and fan base growth. Often times, the band or artists are quick to gain attention with a downward decline over a period of time. Most fans will start to find other artists to follow as most artists stick to the same kind of style of music. For the Chainsmokers, this is not how they want to be remembered.
Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart became friends through the meeting of the duo after their manager currently set up a chance meeting. Andrew was living in Maine and had taken interest in the music industry portion of DJ-ing. Alex Pall had been living in NYC for quite sometime and was working as a DJ throughout the NYC area.
When the duo came to meet, no one knew for sure that they would hit it off so well however they did. Since they met, they have spent countless hours working on their music. For the group, the typical release time for a single was around a months time. In their current album release however, they have taken more time to figure out their music and where they would like to see the music go to.
Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart have become life long friends who continue to do what they love most. They have included new people to their tracks and have changed their overall performance to include vocals where as prior to this album, it did not. The new changes made to their music has helped to increase their fan base as more fans are being lured over by the vocals put out on the tracks rather than just the beats coming from them.
The pair have spent a lot of time thinking about where they would like the music to venture over to and since they are always looking for new and exciting ways to bring more happiness to their fans, there is no telling where the band might stop at. For now, the Chainsmokers have been lucky enough to reach the top of the charts and hang out there unlike many others who have climbed to the top and declined rather quickly.
Followers of Drew Taggart or Alex Paul from The Chainsmokers, the duo known for their modular synth work and vocal samples, on Facebook already know that they are at it again. And they will be doing it again once every month for the remainder of 2018.
If you are dying to hear more from the Chainsmokers because you are completely addicted, needing hot beats flowing through your ears like a yellow-fingered cowboy needs his Marlboros before you simply “can’t even,” fear not; the partners are currently releasing one song per month from their anticipated sophomore album, so fans have something to look forward to all year round. That is at least twelve times you can get your Chainsmokers fix and it is cheaper than a pack of smokes in New York City.
Song number four was up to bat this April is titled, “Somebody,” and features Drew Love, a foxy R&B artist based in Washington D.C. Mr. Love previously released covers on Youtube under the name “Cl9ud,” and is part of various other projects such as the duo, “THEY.” The three songs released earlier in the year are from earliest to most recent, “Sick Boy,” “You Owe Me,” and “Everybody Hates Me.”
But wait there’s more, not only is there a new tune to listen to, but the duo have released a miniature demonstration of the making of their new single, “Somebody.” The clip does leave something to be desired. It is short and the song appears to be created out of nowhere except for some vocals that were supposed to be part of another track. Just as the video starts to ge interesting it is over. However, the partners have promised a more in depth video about how “Somebody” came to fruition with more details and maybe even some tips and tricks of the trade. This prospective gem adds another piece to look forward to from the EDM- pop allstars this year.
