Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart are Evolving as Artists

Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart make up the EDM production duo of The Chainsmokers. They are the creators of hit songs like “Paris,” “Roses,” and “Don’t Let Me Down.” The release of their song “Closer” marked an important change in direction for the band, and it certainly paid off. “Closer”, which also features Halsey, has gained over two billion views on YouTube.

The change in direction came in the form of Andrew Taggart providing vocals for a song. Prior to “Closer,” Taggart joined Halsey in a romantic duet about two people who have recently moved away from home to start a life together. Despite the fact that The Chainsmokers haven’t normally sang their own vocals, a majority of The Chainsmoker’s songs are extremely personal: The Chainsmokers write their own songs. “Closer,” was written on the tour bus by Andrew Taggart and a friend of the band.

Interview Magazine was created by the legendary Andy Warhol. The Chainsmokers sat down with the late artist’s magazine after the release of “Closer” to provide answers to questions about a wide range of topics.

The interviewer began by soliciting an origin story from The Chainsmokers. Alex Pall explained that he was working around New York City as a DJ when he realized how music was consuming a majority of his time. After his previous partner bailed, Pall’s manager introduced him to Andrew Taggart. The two instantly realized the potential in one another, and they immediately went to work.

Andrew Taggart was living in Maine at the time, but he drove straight to New York City to begin a business relationship with Pall. The duo began working long hours in order to create the style and sound they are known for today.

However, that style is about to change. Andrew’s singing career began a butterfly effect for The Chainsmokers. With Andrew taking over vocals, their live show had to change as well. In the future, The Chainsmokers hope to have Taggart perform as lead singer as a long term role. The days of having a loud speaker blast the vocals of artists who couldn’t be on tour with them are over. With Andrew Taggart providing the vocals, The Chainsmokers are making moves that cement their status as a band rather than a production team.
