Although The Chainsmokers Broke into the musical scene and blazed charts across several countries with their 2014 hit offering “#selfie” they had much more to offer the listeners. The New York city based Chainsmokers have proven to have created an unforgettable debut Album.
“Memories… Do Not Open” hijacked the dance floor upon its release on April seventh of last year and debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. Their album has earned them millions of fans worldwide and is labeled a must have by EDM aficionados.
This EDM Pop duo consists of Alexander “Alex” Pall the DJ and Andrew Taggart the main voice, writer and producer of the group. They were introduced by a mutual associate and friend in 2012 and began by creating remixes of indie music. That led to them working in conjunction with various artist.
Along the way they tweaked and formulated what would become the sound that has defined them. They admit they have been inspired by artist like Taylor Swift, Max Martin and Blink-182, among others.
Where Did They Come Up With The Name?
When asked about the origin of their name Alex Pall responded,”I don’t even remember, I think we had a show and we had to choose something.”
Their Reign At The Top
They currently have the distinction of ruling at the pinnacle of Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart. The twelve tracks provide a forty-three minute and nineteen-second escape into their self-described “blend of melodic and emotional house music.”
They understand what party people and club goers want to hear. Although their position has fluctuated on the chart it has always remained well within the top 10.
Since the release of “Memories… Do Not Open” the pair have released various singles and collaborations. On April of this year, they release their Sick Boy EP.
They are constantly touring globally with no end in sight. It’s interesting to see what lies ahead because every time they’re bumped from the top position they find a way to regain their king of the hill status and blaze the charts.
