The Chainsmokers is a widely popular duo in EDM or electronic dance music. It was formed about a handful of year ago and is now one of the most popular EDM bands in the music genre. The Chainsmokers write their own songs, make their own music, and produce it. They are known for writing songs from the heart that detail their past experiences, thoughts, feelings, hopes, and dreams.
The EDM duo was formed by Alex Pall and another guy who later left and was replaced by Drew Taggart. He is a huge believer in writing personal lyrics and believes that in doing so, the gap between the individual listener and The Chainsmokers is bit smaller. Drew Taggart writes many of the songs for the EDM duo.
Drew Taggart was one of the few people in his college that were into electronic dance music The genre had just started making its presence known among the public and still had many people that were skeptical of it. By the time he dropped out of the college to pursue a career in the music industry, Avicii had blown up, and the former skeptics were crowding in front of clubs to attend the performance of the band. That gave Drew Taggart a lot of hope for the future of the genre.
The other member of the Chainsmokers is Alexander “Alex” Pall. Alex Pall is the DJ half of the DJ and production duo. Alex was born in 1985 and grew up in Westchester County in New York. While growing up, Alex Pall developed a passion for music and picked up DJing as a hobby. Alex Pall has described how at first it never meant to be professional pursuit, but after realizing how passionate he was about his music, he decided to try turning his hobby into a career. It was after this that Alex Pall was introduced to Andrew Taggart, who would later become the second half of The Chainsmokers duo.
The EDM duo recently released their latest track called Sick Boy. It is climbing the chart and paving the way for their next music pieces.
