The Chainsmokers have been breaking records and smashing it at the top of the music billboards for the last couple of years since they made it to the big time. Alex and Andrew, the duo responsible for one of the hottest DJ production teams in the country today, have taken a new direction to their music as of late. Typically, everyone knows of the Chainsmokers for the upbeat vibes and party music that is centered on electronic beats and smooth melody. At the beginning of this year, the two DJ’s released a song that is nothing like anything their fans have heard thus far.
Complete with deep rock sounds and a dark tone, The Chainsmokers latest hit single “Sick Boy”, is something new altogether for them. According to their latest interviews, Alex and Andrew decide to go in a new direction for several different reasons, though it was mainly to grow as artists. Since they first became famous, all they have produced is the same party music that is meant to be fun and speak to a specific generation. However, they want to speak to their audience in a way they never have before and connect with them on a deeper level.
Their new song “Sick Boy” takes a deeper look into the lives that we as people live today, centered around social media and technology. In an attempt to let their fans and their critics know they are more than just celebrities making tons of money and living the good life. They are aware of the issues going on in the world, and they want to reflect on those issues in their music to speak to their audience.
Since first going public, “Sick Boy” has been received quite well for the Chainsmokers, especially over in Europe and the Midwest where darker music is much more popular. According to the Chainsmokers, there is much more to come in the future, along with many collaborations with great artists as they have done in the past.
