Starting in 2015, everyone has been hearing about The Chainsmokers. They have become megastars in the music world thanks to their remixes and collaborations with various pop stars. In the past couple of years, the duo Alex and Andrew have managed to gain millions of fans from all over the world, making smash hits that top the music charts for months on end. Despite being fun party music, their music was popular among all the different generations, which is ultimately what led them to try something different. Anyone who stays up to date with the Chainsmokers has probably heard their new song, “Sick Boy”, though they probably didn’t know it was them until they were told.
This new style of music for the Chainsmokers is nothing like what they produced in the past and has a much darker feel to it. Instead of being happy and fun, “Sick Boy” is focused on conveying a deeper message and connecting with people in a way the group hasn’t done in the past. The Chainsmokers understand the pain and unfair things that happen in the world each day, which all people have to experience. Since everyone is in this together here on the same earth, the Chainsmokers want to make more of an effort to bring the problems to light, rather than shying away from them.
According to the music production duo, they have bigs plans for the future of their music and much more is coming, though none of it will replicate the old music that they became famous for. That being said, they have done pretty well despite such a big change in their MO. They have various collaborations in the works like they have always done in the past. It will be excited to see which artists they begin creating music with their new focus and genre in mind.
