Alex Pall of the Chainsmokers was the subject of a very interesting interview by Interview Magazine. It was a fascinating look into the Chainsmokers origins and their future ambitions. Alex started his musical life as a DJ growing up around New York City. It was during this time that he meet his Chainsmokers band mate Andrew Taggart. Once they met they spent many hours discussing their musical interests and goals. One aspect the team really bonded over was their desire to really make it in the music industry. They wanted the Chainsmokers to have a unique sound that was unlike anything anyone had ever heard.
Soon the pair was working long nights to create a sound they could call their own, something different from the norm. As a team they would spend a lot of time debating whether they were making the right decisions when it came to new music or even the idea of album covers for their newest album. A major goal for the team has always been to keep things new and interesting.
During the interview Alex spoke about the process of writing new music. The team often uses song writers, but all the songs are about Alex and Andrew. This makes the album have a much better flow and is more intimate which the Chainsmokers fans love. According to Alex the social media site Instagram gives him the best view of who his fans really are. International fans are starting to make up a larger portion of the bands fan base. Having an equal split of boy and girl fans is something that makes the band very happy. Now that the band has expanded their audience they hope to also expand their live show. They have plans to make their next tour even more exciting than their last.
