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.

The Chainsmokers Give Sick Beats to “Sick Boy” Single

Chainsmokers have proven themselves to be one of the hottest group of producers and singing duos in the pop industry. Their music has a pop deal, but it also collects the ears of an R&B audience as well. The low bass sounds and all of the grimy drums make Chainsmokers something of a dirty pop act.

As this duo evolves it is clear that the sale that they are reaching for this even edgier audience than they have reached before. Some may say that Chainsmokers are taking a walk on the wild side that is a dark side that has been unveiled. Fortunately, this is something that their fans have graded with an A+ when it comes to this new sound. They have become intrigued with the deeper level of R&B boldness that has been brought to this duo’s production. This may be one of the main reasons that this group stands out.

The fact that they are able to play the production roll and also occupy the role of singing makes them a hard act to follow. There are few acts that are able to produce and write their own music as well. There are even fewer that are able to write, produce and sing the songs. This makes the group of triple threat. It also makes it very easy to see how their success may extend long past recent years in which they have come into the limelight.

The fact that music fans are embracing this new sound means that even more people are going to hear what the Chainsmokers are bringing to the table. The duo has been compared to producers like Timbaland during the Aaliyah era for the dark beats that often have female guess appearances on these tracks. The Chainsmokers are part of a very limited group of producers that have been nominated for Grammy awards and grossed close to $40 million dollars just in the course of 2 years. They have had number one songs like “Closer” and now “Sick Boy” is the dark new single that is climbing up the charts very quickly.
