Alex Pall Talks Transistions in 2016 Interview

Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart of The Chainsmokers fame, have been enjoying mainstream success for about four years now. Their first breakthrough hit, “#Selfie”, hitting the charts in 2014. Since then it has been a thrill ride of success that has happened so fast their heads are still spinning. Now Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart are sitting down to talk about identity, pushing boundaries, and how Dashboard Confessional is responsible for their new sound.

According to Pall the duo gets together every day to work on who they are, it is an endless quest for self-discovery. “You have to try new things in order to stay engaged and interested” Pall says. This is certainly true of the Chainsmokers. They have been trying plenty of new things over the years. First and foremost, EDM DJs rely on other artists for a lot of things. Mainly songwriting and the song singing. The genre is awash in seven or eight remixes of the same source material. The 2016 release of charting single “Closer” pushed some boundaries as Taggart took the lead vocals. This is a very unique thing to do. The duo also involves themselves in the writing of their songs, taking part in some or all of its creation. When asked why they are forging in this new direction Pall responded with, “Why not? Nobody else was doing it.”

Andrew Taggart also revealed that their new wave of songwriting came from sitting on a tour bus listening to music. Namely they were listening to Dashboard Confessional and Taking Back Sunday. Taggart remembers thinking about how he missed songs like that, relatable and thought-provoking commentaries on the world at large. It was then that the duo decided to write songs about themselves. “We do not want to make an album of twelve songs that have no connection,” Pall says, “we want a cohesive album of work that relates to who we are.” Their newest 2018 release, “Sick Boy” is yet another step in staying relevant. When asked how Pall stays current with his listeners he credited Instagram for keeping him up to date on trends.
