Alex Pall Discusses How The Chainsmokers Came To Be

It’s not often musical artists rise from obscurity to worldwide renown in just a few short years but the Chainsmokers are one of the few exceptions to this rule. So how did they manage to attain such pervasive fame in such a period of time? Alex Pall recently interviewed with Interview Magazine to discuss the origins of the DJ and production duo and what they’d like to accomplish in their careers. While in NYC, Alex Pall’s manager introduced them and they could instantly tell each other was serious about making music. From there on in, they began working together on a regular basis and it wasn’t long before they had dropped their first hit single. That particular song ended up soaring to the top of the charts and, as one popular song led to another, it wasn’t long before the Chainsmokers had become a household name.

They recently collaborated with Halsey on their new track, Closer, and they enjoyed every minute of working with her, calling her a fun and cool artist who isn’t afraid of deviating from norms. Their demographic used to be mostly young people between the ages of 15 and 30 but, nowadays, they find that their fanbase consists of various people of all ages. Unlike most DJs, they actually provide the vocals for their own music but they insist that it’s necessary due to the lyrics pertaining to their own lives and experiences. They also mentioned that their concerts are constantly fluctuating.

This is due to the fact that the music industry is consistently growing and evolving and, thus, the Chainsmokers recognized the need to evolve along with it. As for their future, they have said that they don’t plan on taking a hiatus anytime soon because they understand that things would be radically different upon their return. The duo is currently back in the recording studio working on their second studio album and recently released their first hit single off of that project entitled Sick Boy. They have not yet revealed a release date for this album but, nevertheless, we wish them luck on it.
