The News on the Chainsmokers

On January 17, 2018, the Chainsmokers released yet another big hit, Sick Boy and You Owe Me. The Chainsmokers have only been around for the past two years. The incredibly talented band consists of Alex Pall age 32 and Drew Taggart age 28. They have been performing top songs one after the other. To keep this kind of fame up will be a stressful process, but they have shown over and over they have what it takes to do so. The Chainsmokers’ music fuses streams of indie, dance beats, pop, hip-hop, and expertly crafted electronic soundscapes into cool rifts of smoking sound


Since hitting success with “Roses” and “Don’t Let Me Down,” the duo has added a new dimension to their work with Taggart, one half of the duo, adding his singing to their crowd-rousing sound beginning with the single “Closer,” in which Halsey also performs. Popularity has skyrocketed greatly for the duo. The Chainsmokers have won two American Music Awards, Grammy Awards, five iHeartRadio Music Awards, and are continually preparing to release some new musical treats since their beginnings.


Their most recent song called “Sick Boy”, was a long overdue song, considering they had nothing new for 9 months. The song is a little dark but as Drew stated in the interview with Forbes “he thinks this is the way our society now.” The words to a song are usually something felt in the artist life, but the interpretation is always left up to the fans. The song seems dark and twisted but considering the way our culture is right now and the pressures kids have these days, this song seems to fit right in. The kids these days are all connected to one another through social media to the point we are all on stage. (View: The Chainsmokers New Song Video)



“Sick boy” has a different feel compared to their other music that’s for sure. Some people like the song and others will not, but it’s all left up to each person’s take on the song. Their name “Chainsmokers” is a mystery because neither of them smokes and they don’t want to explain how they came up with it. Their music is a mix of hip-hop, dance music, pop and electro-pop. They seem to express their lives through music in many different music styles. This duo doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon, they plan to be around for a long time to come.
