The Chainsmokers: Taking on the Summer

The Chainsmokers were formed when the band’s current manager, Adam Alpert, introduced two of friends to each other, Alex Pall and Andrew “Drew” Taggart. Alpert knew that Pall needed a DJ partner, and he also knew that Taggart would be a perfect fit. Pall and Taggart had a quick, easy chemistry together and both men quit their day jobs to make a gS .

By 2014 the Chainsmokers were ready for their debut, playing a show at Terminal 5 in New York in September as the opener for Timeflies. The show was a success and the Chainsmokers were ready to get it done.

They have had several chart-topping songs and Ep’s, but arguably their biggest success came with their first full-length album, “Memories…Do Not Open.” The album hit #1 on both of Billboard’s Dance/Electronic and Top 200 Charts. They have a great deal of crossover popularity, selling many albums outside of the dance/electronic genre.

They often release free singles via their website, with the songs being downloadable for anyone. These singles are often more experimental than their longer play recordings. Though these single releases they maintain a presence in the music scene between longer albums. They also get the chance to explore other genres of music and collaborate with a diversity of other musicians.

The most recent of their singles, “Side Effects”, is a collaboration with Emily Warren. Pall and Taggart have worked with Warren several times before and enjoy their experiences with her, naming her one of their “favorite people.” “Side Effect” represents a return to a more upbeat sound for the Chainsmokers, who tend to write music incorporating their feelings and experiences at the time. During the last winter, normally a subdued and melancholy time, they were having some rough experiences and much of the music they released at the time showcase this. Pall and Taggart consciously made “Side Effects” more upbeat, with a faster tempo. They wanted to step into summer with something they described as a “summer banger” for their fans. They want the new season to have a new direction for their music.
