The Chainsmokers have released a new song called “Sick Boy”. This song represents a darker side of the Chainsmokers, where they will be bringing their fans in the future. The song represents the anger and frustration that Andre Taggart and Alex Pall have, since they are now famous and have critics that insult their music and their lifestyle, without even fully knowing them. The song is also a new beginning, and a new chapter of the story of the Chainsmokers as electronic dance music artists.
The Chainsmokers met when and have only been in the mainstream music spotlight for two years know, although it seems that they have been around for decades to some fans of EDM, also known as Electronic Dance Music. The first time that the Chainsmokers broke into the top ten list was in 2015, when they released “Roses”, and since then, they have been on the top ten lists for years, rather than months, which is a difficult accomplishment to achieve. The pressure to continue to succeed as an artist duo is the other piece of the motivation for Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall.
The duo had not put out a song in nine months, which is a relatively long time for them, as they like to stay current with the music that they create by releasing one new song every month. Certainly the duo could simply put out more variations of the same songs, and over half a dozen new compositions would not be too difficult for them to create. But the motivation was to give the fans something new, and to begin a new chapter in the life of Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall. The style of the duo has been a mix of Electronic Dance Music and Top 40 Pop, but going with a darker twist to the music has allowed the duo to access a new market share with their songs.
