Growth Track with Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart of The Chainsmokers

Since achieving their breakthrough in 2014 with their song #Selfie, The Chainsmokers have kept their eyes on the horizon. From figuring out who they are to ever-developing and refining their style, The Chainsmokers keep taking strides to find their truest sound.

In an interview with Mathias Rosenzweig for Interview Magazine, Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart go into detail about the amount of effort and sacrifice they had to put in, in order to grow and form what they have today.

Going back to the basics, Rosenzweig asks a bit about the band’s background; how they met and how they came to the decision to move forward from that point. Both Pall and Taggart revealed that they had a love for EDM growing up, perhaps even before others in their social spheres really gave it a chance. Pall had a DJ thing going on on the side, playing at events around the New York City scene, while Taggart focused more on producing and even released a few songs on SoundCloud. Either way, both saw a path to pursue their music. Having met through a mutual acquaintance, Pall and Taggart immediately hit it off and focused on meeting each other’s stride for their sound.

Rosenzweig then inquires about their difficulties in standing out in mainstream music, all the while admiring their uniqueness for singing their own vocals. Taggart admits that being unique as DJs, in and of itself can be hard, since so much of mainstream music these days is similar. Their focus was on defining their sound to stand out amongst all the rest, so they merged indie, pop, dance, and hip-hop. Pall revealed that their decision to sing their own lyrics was honestly very straightforward. Why shouldn’t they? That alone separates them from typical DJs.

Concluding the interview, Rosenzweig’s closing questions call for their future plans. The DJ duo explain that over time their sound has been evolving, while their audience has expanded. For this reason, they hope to go beyond just performing their songs. They ultimately want to keep “pushing new boundaries and giving people new experiences.”
