Alex Pall, one of the famous duos of “The Chainsmokers” band, had an interview with Mathias Rosenzweig around the release of their new track “Close” for “Interview Magazine,” on July 28, 2016.
Rosenzweig started his interview by asking Alex Pall to tell him how “The Chainsmorkers” started?
One day I was at an art gallery when it hit me that dance music was taking over my life and I was enjoying it. So I decided to see where this new love was taking me. My manager who is now our manager introduced me to Andrew Taggart, and we just hit it off well. That is how it all started.
Alex, how did you know it would work out after you two met?
We both grow up liking music we are both ambitious and driven. We both also pay close attention to what type of music works and which ones do not. Our working habits are the same we work hard to create our own identity as artists.
It surprises me that performers like you two actually sing your songs
Why shouldn’t we sing our songs? We wrote some of our songs, and sometimes songwriters write the other songs. However, no matter whether we write them or not it is still us.
How was it working with Halsey on “Closer” Alex?
Halsey is one of the artists that we have always wanted to work with she is the best. Halsey has a powerful voice; her sound is unique.
What type of people connect with your music?
Thanks to Social Media I am able to see actually who is connecting to our music. Our fans come from places like the Philippines and South Africa. We are reaching a demographic between 16 and 25. The demographic is half boys and half girls if I need to take a guess.
So Alex how is your music changing your live show?
We won’t be doing the same things; we want our show to be exciting to keep the audience coming. With “Closer” coming out it will dramatically change our shows.
