Back in 2015, The Chainsmokers broke out onto the music scene with their hit ‘Roses’ and in the past two years they have seen tremendous success. It seems like they have been part of the music industry forever but Alex Pall and Drew Taggart actually gained fame almost overnight thanks to their collaboration with Halsey and other musicians like Daya. Such fast success can sometimes be dangerous for musical groups if they feel they can’t keep up or are overwhelmed by the fame. The Chainsmokers have begun to create some new music and they are taking a bit of a different approach this time around with much darker and more insightful songs like ‘Sick Boy’.
‘Sick Boy’ was written after a nine month break of not releasing a brand new song of any sort. This was a big break since the group was putting out new music almost every month when they first became a hit. Previously, The Chainsmokers would pride themselves on including lyrics on their generation, the World and romance. This new title track reflects the current tone of society according to the group. Frustration and anger came from two musicians who were watching themselves become famous and fighting to stay true to who they are. An honest reaction to this change and development in their lives is what The Chainsmokers wrote about. Not quite a political stance or an opinion on our country in essence, ‘Sick Boy’ reflects how social media is playing a large role in our lives and the lives of musicians, actors, actresses and other celebrities. Society is turning these people into something in-human to some degree.
The plan after ‘Sick Boy’ is released is to start pumping out new music like The Chainsmokers are used to. You can expect a slew of releases to start hitting the charts like mad in the coming months so get ready because a tour will follow as well. The sounds you hear will evolve with each new track so while the music may be getting a little bit darker after this break, keeping things fresh is what will stay true.
