Alex Pall Discusses The Chainsmokers’ Origin and Praises Halsey

Interview Magazine was founded by Andy Warhol, an artist who specialized in pop culture and advertising. He passed away in 1987.

The Chainsmokers are a musical duo that have produced songs such as “Roses,” “Don’t Let Me Down,” and “#Selfie.”

The Chainsmokers, which consists of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart, recently conducted an interview with the late Andy Warhol’s magazine in promotion for their new song “Closer.” They discussed topics ranging from their interests in music to their future in the industry.

First, the interviewer asked The Chainsmokers about how they met, and both Pall and Taggart gave their side of the story.

Alex Pall was DJing around New York City just before the meeting. Pall was recently left by the previous member of The Chainsmokers, and he was in dire need of a new partner.

Andrew Taggart was going to college in Maine, and he was interning at Interscope studios. Someone at Interscope Records, who was in contact with Alex Pall’s manager, told Taggart that an position had opened up with The Chainsmokers, who at the time were not a popular act. Taggart jumped at the opportunity and rode a bus down to New York.

Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart forged an incredible working relationship in record time. They discussed their musical interests, their goals in the music industry, and their methods on making music. This led to a deep understanding with each other and enabled them to make unique music.

In the interview the topic of Halsey also came up. When the interviewer asked what it was like working with Halsey, Alex Pall responded.

“She’s incredible,” Pall boasted. “If you had asked us over the last year who was an artist that we wanted to work with, Halsey was number one on that list.” Alex Pall continued his praise of Halsey calling her very cool and a unique artist. “She has a very strong voice and she’s just very unapologetically her.”

The Inner Workings of A Hit–The Chainsmokers Reveal how Somebody Was Made

Together, Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart, make up an American DJ and production duo known as The Chainsmokers. The group was originally formed with other members, but Pall and Taggart got together in 2012 to make The Chainsmokers who they are today. After a few years of partnership, they were able to make their live debut in 2014 opening for Timeflies at Terminal 5. Their first single, #Selfie, was eventually picked up in 2014 and made its way to the Electric/Dance charts that same year and the rest is history.

 

The Chainsmoker’s most recent hit, Somebody, has also found its way to the top of the charts as well, sitting atop the Billboard’s New Dance 100 list. The single has also experienced much success with one billion Spotify streams. Needless to say, their first single was popular, but this one has the duo in a whirlwind of success. They have spent the first half of 2018 introducing us to new songs and performing around the country.

 

Pall and Taggart recently allowed their fans the opportunity to see the inner workings of what went into the making of Somebody. What set it apart from the rest? What made the unique sound so popular? How did they decide to produce it? Well, the duo posted a video on Facebook showing a snippet of just how this chart topping hit was created. One thing that sets it apart is the use of frequent modular synth work and pitched-up vocal samples. They also revealed that the changes in pitch are due in large part because parts of the song were originally recorded for a different song.

 

This duo appears to know where their talent lies and are capitalizing on what they do best in order to bring great content to their fans, and the fans are reciprocating. 2018 thus far has proved to be successful for The Chainsmokers and for now, they are enjoying that success as much as they can.
