EDM is a music genre that is hard to make your way into. Once you are in though, you tend to buiild a fan base of fans which will follow you for many years. One of those bands that fans flock to is The Chainsmokers. They are well known for hits like “Roses”, “Closer” and even “Don’t Let Me Down”. The band is focused more on the electronic side more than they are for the lyrics or vocals.
The Chainsmokers band consist of band members Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart. For the band mates, when they first started playing together, they enjoyed what they did because of the experience they were getting but also because they were doing what they love. Lately, the band mates have been mixing it up a bit by also performing real lyrics for their fans. For them, the experience was like no other because no one else was performing this way. It made the bar even higher for others to reach if they wanted to be someone.
What is even more impressive about the whole thing is that the band mates are singing about things that have really happened in their own lives. They are taking their life experiences and making them into songs. For their albums, they may not write all the songs that are being performed but they are involved in all the songs in one shape or another.
Not only has the band worked hard to be sure that they are performing top singles, they are also working with top artists who have experience in the music field. One of those performers is Halsey. She worked closely with the band to perform on “Closer”. The band couldnt have asked for someone better to work with. They were a fan of hers well before they had her perform on the single. For the single choice, Drew worked with a pal to write the song while sitting on the tour bus. That is how personal the song is for them. Making the step to include her on the song was something that didnt have to be thought over.
