Chainsmokers released their new track ‘Closer’, unlike their singles like ‘Don’t Let Me Down’, featuring Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall. As opposed to the musicians who stand behind a DJ booth, The Chainsmokers efforts to personalize their brand dance goes along with their ambition of being recognized as real artists with goals and ambitions. Pall and Taggart are operating to show their identity on a daily basis. When we spoke to them about their new track, establishing status, and their plans, this is what Alex Pall had to say.
About working together
Pall said that he was a DJ when growing up and this was his hobby. He worked as a DJ through New York City which was more of side work, and Pall was passionate about it. Pall was at the art gallery and noticed that dance music was wasting his life; therefore, wanting to give it a better shot. At that time he still was with the same manager who introduced him to Drew, so they met and started working. When he moved down from Maine, Pall had to quit his job, and that is how it all began.
