A New Time for The Chainsmokers

The Chainsmokers, Alex Pall and Drew Taggart, originally formed back in 2012. However, their breakthrough song wasn’t until 2015 with “Roses”, which hit the top 10 on the US Billboard’s Hot 100. After this The Chainsmokers released songs nearly every month with various collaborations with artist such as Daya, Halsey, and Coldplay. Releasing top charting songs for weeks and quickly The Chainsmokers became a renowned band with a significant fan base. The music style of The Chainsmokers has been, in the past years, up-to-date with the current styles being released. But after a nine month break The Chainsmokers have came back, January 2018, with a much deeper and darker side of music releasing “Sick Boy”.

In a recent interview Alex Pall and Drew Taggart explain this new darker side their lyrics and music. Stating that not only have they grown up as people, but as artists as well and they as a band know what they want to talk about lyrically through their music. Although, their music is still a reflection of today’s generation with lyrics like “how many likes is my life worth” referring to the idea of how this generation communicates using social media, such as twitter, Instagram, etc. “Sick Boy” is stated to be “one installment of this new chapter” to be released by The Chainsmokers and other unknown collaborations and producers.

The darkness of this new music has come from some anger in which social media can cause. For instance, people relating to you for someone you’re not or people degrading you for someone you’re not. There are both good and bad to social media and as stated by Taggart sometimes you just need to let it out. That is what they are doing for this chapter in their career as a successful band. They are not setting themselves up for failure by “knowing” this is going to be a hit album. They just want the fans to follow this new chapter and listen to how they feel not only as a band, but also how others or yourself might feel with this new darker side.

To help encourage greater giving he has now launched a program at his business to raise funds for other groups. Through this new program every associate at Talk Fusion is able to donate a free account to a charity they choose.

About Skout And Their Random Acts Of Kindness

Witnessing Kindness First Hand

How often are you kind to strangers? Have you ever seen a random act of kindness take place? Pay close attention to the world around you because you will likely see a random act of kindness take place when you pay close attention to the words and actions of other people. If you don’t see enough kindness, then maybe you should be the one to step up and be kind to others. Showing kindness to other people is like sharing your heart with other people. It can feel nice to do, and it completely changes the attitudes of other people.

There was recently a survey that was taken by Skout to understand how people feel about random acts of kindness. The results show that our society still really values random acts of kindness. In fact, of the 2,700 people that were surveyed for the project, most of the people were college students, and they still admitted to having done a random act of kindness for a stranger.

The survey had the users rank which acts of kindness were most meaningful. The most meaningful act on the survey results was to pay it forward to a stranger by buying them a cup of coffee or paying for their food when you visit a drive thru line. These simple acts can brighten a person’s day, and it sends messages of positivity to everyone who witnesses the act.
