Alex Pall is part of the duo that makes the Chainsmokers. The pair that has focused on electronic music recently had an interview with Mathias Rosenzweig of Interview Magazine. He wanted to know how they were getting along after the release of their awaited song “closer” featuring Halsey, the star-of-the-moment. Alex and his partner talked openly about how they planned to establish their identity and unfold with their expanding audience.According to Alex, the two met through their manager. He was DJing around New York when his desire for electronic music grew and he decided to give it a shot and immediately found a new partner.
When Rosenzweig asked about how they knew they could work together, Alex replied saying, both knew what they wanted, had the same core values and were willing to take risks towards shaping the same identity. His ally, Taggart, agreed with him as he responded to Mathias on the challenges they faced as a DJ duo making electronic music. He said that the fact that a million people were doing the same thing, one had to imitate what’s going on around until they can develop skills to make something unique.
The pair moved Rosenzweig because unlike their peers, they sang their compositions. Alex told him that they were at a point where anything they did contributed to shaping their identity. They preferred doing their songs so that each song in an album of 10 songs would have a relation with the other. He told the magazine that working with Halsey was an incredible opportunity because she was a great artist both vocally and even when performing.
Alex Pall was grateful for social media for helping them reach a wider audience, something that excited them. Andrew backed him up saying that as they grew their music evolved from targeting only the college students to reaching a below 15 and over 30 audience. They told Mathias that they were pushing so hard to have every fan catered for by changing their visuals on their shows. The two are determined to give their fans new experiences each time.
