The Chainsmokers music video for their new single called “Side Effects” features Emily Warren and has been a hit amongst the fans of this musical duo. The video is directed by Matthew Dillon Cohen and the story involves a hotel employee (Played by actress Camila Mendes) that gets a phone call from her boss, alerting her that she is going to have to work all weekend long. The hotel employee, instead of getting upset or feeling down, tears away from her work attire and starts to move across the colorful hotel to the flow of the upbeat pop song.
The Chainsmokers is an American music duo which consists of Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall. Born on May 16, 1985, Alex Pall takes place as the DJ of the duo. Born on December 31, 1989, Andrew Taggart works as the writer, producer, and vocalist of the duo. The Chainsmokers primarily produce a mix of EDM and pop as their genre of choice. The duo rose to fame in 2014 when they dropped their hit single “#Selfie” which ranked in the top 20 of music charts across several different countries. On October 23, 2015, The Chainsmokers released their introduction EP called “Bouquet” which featured a song called “Roses” that was a huge hit and ended up reaching the US Billboard Hot 100 and ended up being in the top ten of the list.
This song stamps the Chainsmokers 5th song of the year following the trail of their other songs like “Sick Boy,” “You Owe Me,” “Everybody Hates Me,” and “Somebody”. The Chainsmokers have won 30 awards and have been nominated for 127. Some of their awards include being the “favorite electronic/dance music artist” of both 2016 and 2017, and the “most performed song of 2018” awarded by the ASCAP Pop Music Awards. The next album they’re working on is called “Sick Boy,” which will trail their 2017 album called “Memories…Do Not Open.”
Recently, the Chainsmokers released their new track “Closer,” which fans have been waiting to hear for some time. Alex Pall was interviewed after the band released this new hit, and it looks as if the members of the group are looking to reveal more about themselves as the years go by. When asked how he started working with Andrew Talggart, Alex Pall commented that being a DJ was a hobby of his as he was growing up. He was doing his thing in New York City and was really doing it as a side gig, and then his manager, who manages them both now, introduced them to each other. Taggart left his life in Maine to move to NYC, and Pall quit his job to get to work as a musician.
Alex Pall admits that, both, he and Andrew Taggart understood the skills that each other contributed to the duo. They used to talk about the kinds of music they enjoyed growing up and related to each others’ ambition in the field of music. Before he knew it, they were both working with each other on a daily basis trying to forge a musical identity. While they didn’t want their musical career to become like a job, they knew they had to work hard to get it off-of-the-ground. Pall now understands that his music is what pays his bills, but he also knows that he wants to continue to be an artist who is on a journey to discover himself.
Alex Pall has revealed in an interview that while many other singers have songwriters write their music for them, this is not how it is with the Chainsmokers. He admits that they do work with songwriters on occasion, but that they are a part of the writing process even then. Today, Andrew Taggart and himself are working on more music that helps to define where they are at today. This is difficult because fans are demanding a new album, but Pall doesn’t want to release one with a bunch of disjointed songs that are not connected to one another. The duo plans on continuing to work with what they’ve got and to produce the amazing music they are known for.
