It’s not always easy adjusting to abrupt fame, especially when it occurs practically overnight and yet somehow the Chainsmokers seem to be taking it all in stride. So how have they managed to balance their renown while still staying down to earth? Mathias Rosenzweig recently caught up with Alex Pall to discuss how they’ve managed to stay at the top of their game for so long and where they would like to go with their careers in the future. The two first got their start in the big apple after Pall’s manager introduced them and they instantly recognized how compatible they are. They began making music together soon afterward and, before long, their first hit single had dropped, thereby gaining international fame and selling over 4 million copies worldwide.
One thing led to another and, before either of them knew what was happening, the Chainsmokers had become a household name. Their international acclaim and success eventually led to their collaboration with Halsey. When discussing that experience, he mentioned that she was a fun and cool person to work with who doesn’t capitulate to conformity. Their fanbase used to consist mostly of teenagers and young adults but it has since grown to incorporate people of all genders and ages. Additionally, they are constantly changing and modifying their concerts as the music industry continues to grow and evolve over the years.
Unlike most other DJs, they actually do provide the vocals on their own music which they insist is necessary due to the fact that the lyrics in their tracks pertain to their lives. One particular point of pride for them is the fact that they do not lip sync at their live performances which is not something that all artists can truthfully say about themselves. As for the future of their career, they plan on sticking around for as long as possible because they know that if they ever take a hiatus, things will be significantly different when they come back. So we wish them the best of luck in the future of their career and hope they are continually successful.
