The Chainsmokers Interview (2014)

It’s been an insane year for Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall, a/k/a The Chainsmokers. Their novelty track “#Selfie” exploded from the clubs to become a massive crossover pop hit around the word and has led to an insane tour schedule and a last minute fill-in slot on the main stage of Ultra Music Festival. To think that this is all because of a track that they did as a joke and that is unlike anything else they’ve produced. I caught up with the duo in Nashville, Tennessee, for a quick chat before they performed at Anthem (the first of 6 gigs in four cities that they did over the course of 48 hours). That’s what you call an insane tour schedule…

Interview conducted April 2014. Produced in conjunction with Fusion TV..

SONG OF THE DAY: The Chainsmokers vs Tove Lo – “Habits”

Swedish singer/songwriter Tove Lo seems primed for a major Lorde-like explosion this year.  With her strong collaboration with Seven Lions and Myon & Shane 54 as well as writing credits on songs for Lea Michele and Icona Pop, her songs have an edgy beauty that is quite reminiscent of Sia Furler.  Her song “Habits” has buzzed since the summer, and in the hands of the Chainsmokers gets an energetic electro treatment while keeping the haunting, pretty vocals as the focus over the melodic drop.  Not only are the Chainsmokers starting the year on a high note with a free download, they just might be doing for Tove Lo what Cedric Gervais did for Lana del Rey on his Grammy-nominated “Summertime Sadness” remix.
