The Chainsmokers and Their Short tutorial

The Chainsmokers have been busy in creating their new music that came out early this year. If you have ever thought about how they go about making their number one hits, then you might be lucky because they recently released a small video tutorial on how some of it goes down. They posted the short clip on their facebook profile and did a short tutorial on the creation of their new hit song “somebody.”

In the video they take you through their studio and display some sounds. They give you a small sense of how the composition part of their song goes down, and they promise to create another tutorial that goes more in to detail on the process.

The Chainmokers have released several number one hits and are currently working on more. They have won many different awards and have had the honor of receiving their first Grammy in 2015. In 2018 they released their new music which is far different from their old tunes. They always had an interest in creating love songs, but in their new music they decided to try a new route. They created music with a darker vibe. They wanted their music to relate to their fans and some of them to their own lives. They even go through some of the problems of this generation, such as social media and the amount of likes a person receives. They were hoping to grow a larger audience in creating their new music. Their first single they released in January of 2018 was their song “sick boy.” Sick boy relates to the world problems and it relates to the famous life of the band members Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart, and they’re continuing to display hit after hit.

Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart Discuss Their Music with Interview Magazine

Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall are the group known as The Chainsmokers. Even if the name of the band isn’t immediately recognizable to you, you have probably heard one of their dozens of hit songs. “#Selfie” was released first in 2014, marking their entry into the music world. Many other hit songs followed “#Selfie,” making The Chainsmokers a success.

 

The Chainsmokers haven’t always been a success story though. Alex Pall, one of the original members of the group, was left abandoned by his previous partner. It wasn’t until Andrew Taggart joined the group that it became successful. Andrew Taggart is still reinventing the group.

 

With the release of “Closer,” Andrew Taggart took on another role for the band. He became the lead singer. In the love duet, Andrew Taggart and Halsey exchange versus, expressing the love of two young individuals who are in love. In the song, the couple talk about their relationship and the roles each other play in their lives.

 

In an interview, The Chainsmokers spoke highly of Halsey. Alex Pall called her incredible, complimented her voice, and had many other positive words for Halsey. He also revealed to the interviewer that Halsey was at the top of their future collaborations list.

 

The Chainsmokers also briefly talked about their future. The decision to move Taggart to a lead singer role means change to the live show as well. Previously, Taggart and Pall would be operating the turntables while guest vocalists would sing the songs. If the correct singer wasn’t present, The Chainsmokers would blast their vocals through speakers. Now, moving forward, Andrew Taggart can provide all vocals at their concerts. Whether it is his own vocals or guest vocals, Andrew Taggart can deliver fans a better concert experience.

 

At the end of the interview, Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart promised to continue to innovate, creating better music and expanding their fanbase.
