In recent news, Alex and Andrew have opened up and done an interview with Interview magazine. They have given away small details about their works as well as what they are doing for their futures as artists and how they are changing their music for the better. Staying relevant and desired is a concern for any artist out there and the Chainsmokers are finding the best path for them to take on their musical journey.
Alex and Andrew always seem like an inseparable pair and they are often asked how they know each other, many believing they grew up together. The reality is, they never knew each other before they entered the music scene. Both of them had their own gigs as DJ’s in the states and it was their manager that brought them together after Alex’s first partner left the band. As soon as the two met, it was a perfect musical match. Both of them have the same inspirations, and their passion is similar for the sounds they like to create.
As any musician knows, there are challenges involved in creating an identity among audiences. For Andrew and Alex this is certainly true, as they are happy with who they are recognized as but they still have many hurdles ahead if they want to reach their goals. For a few years, the duo was solely focused on dance music and the party scene, mostly popular with teenagers and the college scene. Today, they have expanded their horizons and are producing new sounds that are a breath of fresh air for their fans.
One thing the Chainsmokers do not plan to change is their collaborations, which have been tremendously successful for them. the great majority of their music since 2015 has featured other musicians and guest vocalists for their songs. Starting in 2018, the Alex and Andrew have made big changes to their musical style, trying to portray a different vibe in their music and tell different stories. The Chainsmokers are still trying to push their boundaries for every show that they do to give the people new and better experiences every time.
