Alex Pall Talks With Rosenzweig About His Music
The Chainsmokers went from relative obscurity to becoming household names in a very short period of time but just how did they manage to become so popular so quickly? Mathias Rosenzweig recently interviewed Alex Pall to discuss the past, present and future of the DJ and production duo. Pall first met Andrew Taggart when he was doing small-time DJ gigs in and around the big apple. Alex’s manager was the one who first introduced them. Andrew was in college at the time but, when he met Pall, he immediately dropped out and moved from Maine down to New York to work on music with him full time. From the moment they walked into each other’s lives, they immediately recognized each other’s passion for music and that’s how they knew things would work out.
He also discussed how they only release their songs in intervals so it has time to permeate the cultural zeitgeist. He also believes it’s important for him to sing on their songs because the music they write pertains to his life. He also praised one of their collaborators, Halsey, saying she’s a unique and cool artist who isn’t afraid to express her own distinct individuality. While their demographic used to be just college students, it has since expanded to include people of all ages. Despite their pervasive fame, Pall talked about how they don’t take any of their fame for granted and how they appreciate everyone who listens to and loves their music.
Finally, he discussed how their live concerts have evolved over time as the music industry continues to change and grow. While not every artist can truthfully say they sing live during their concerts, the Chainsmokers certainly can. This is something in which they take great pride. Some artists take some time off and then return a few years later to resume their music careers. However, Pall reassured Rosenzweig that the Chainsmokers are not going anywhere as they believe it just wouldn’t be the same when they returned to the music scene. So we wish them the best of luck in their musical endeavors and their careers.
