The Chainsmokers Unveil a New Side of their Talent

The Chainsmokers unveil what is likely to be considered a new side of their amazing talent. Upon release of their recent single, “Sick Boy,” they highlight to the world, what it means to be in the spotlight of today’s social media constraints. The Chainsmokers were originally made up of Alex Pall and DJ Rhett Bixler before Bixler left the group. However, the core duo now consists of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart, who were both heavily interested in EDM, and producing music of that nature before they met. Since collaborating and reforming their now, internationally renowned band, they have transformed into a genre-twisting giant. They have breached the number one spot on the US Billboard Hot 100 and in 11 other countries with their famous song, “Closer.” Their debut album, Memories…Do Not Open, was a certified platinum success with tracks like, “Paris” and “Something Just Like This.” The Chainsmokers have been on a tirade with music releases over the last 2 years and are not set to fall off, anytime soon. They keep developing their sound and influence over the industry as seen in their recent release, “Sick Boy.” When the music video for this track was released, it was clear what they wanted to the world to see. “Sick Boy,” demonstrates the ill mind that comes with living through social media. The lyrics state, “Make no mistake, I live in a prison, that I build myself, it is my religion.” They speak on the narcissism which exists from life behind a camera. We all push our own message for the world to see and we each think our message should be the message for the world to accept and conform to. This, they say, creates a sickness which is deliberately shown in their music video with beastly animations as they perform 3 minutes and 38 seconds of the song. Their message is clear, their future is bright, and The Chainsmokers are sure to be here for the long run.
