My Interview With Alex Pall of The Band The Chainsmokers

Alex Pall, of the Chainsmokers, recently released another track called “Closer”. There past songs are “Roses” and “Don’t Let Me Down”. Alex Pall will be doing a duo with Andrew Taggart. Those who rely on other songwriters and vocalists want to add that element to master their crafted electronic soundscapes, while Alex Pall wants to become a true, genuine artist in the music field. Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart are working on revealing themselves through their music by weaving intimacy to a newer generation that’s void of emotions, except when it comes to drug-like euphoria. Recently, I did an interview with Alex Pall and asked him how he was going to establish his identity with his new track and attract an audience.

MATHIAS ROSENZWEIG: How did you start out working in the music industry?

ALEX PALL: I grew up in New York City and became a DJ. At the time, I considered it a hobby or a little career. Overtime, I had other passions beside just being a DJ. It was scary being in a big city pursuing something that’s more fun than just having a job. When I went to an art gallery, I realized that dance and music became more and more a part of my life. I started working with the same manager at the time, and he introduced me to another person named Drew, and we have been working together ever since.

MATHIAS ROSENZWEIG: How did you know it would work after meeting up with Andrew Taggart?

ALEX PALL: I believe when we both met each other, we had the same things in common. As kids, we found out we liked the same kinds of things. While chatting with each other, we found out what would work for us and what wouldn’t work for us. Everyday we worked with Drew on how we were going to build our identity through music. More and more we had a lot to learn with a lot of things to cover. Through time and hard work we both developed a talent in music and dance to reach the audience we intended to reach.
