Alex Pall Comments on Halsey and his Musical Beginnings

Together, Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart make up The Chainsmokers, a band that creates a unique sound, a mixture of dance, EDM, and pop.

The duo is known for their production style, but have recently branched out to include vocalization in their resume.

With the release of “Closer,” which also features popular singer Halsey, Andrew Taggart stepped behind the microphone for the very first time. This marked the transformation of The Chainsmokers from production duo to band. With a lead singer, The Chainsmokers intend to expand their brand, creating further recognition for the group.

During the promotional tour for the new song, Alex Pall had an interview with Interview Magazine. The interviewer asked Pall about a variety of questions, and Pall told all. They discussed topics ranging from the groups beginnings to where the group is currently.

“I was a DJ Growing up,” Pall began, as he started to describe how the group got together. “I was DJing around New York Citiy and had a little career going.” After Pall’s previous band mate bailed on him, Pall’s manager introduced him to Andrew Taggart, a producer from up further north.

Taggart made the long drive from Maine to New York in order to meet with Pall. Each member of the group instantly realized each others potential.

“I think we both initially knew what we brought to the table,” Pall explained. Pall told the interviewer about the process of The Chainsmokers during their early days. They talked about the things they were interested in and the type of music they wanted to make. Eventually, the duo went to work officially, spending long hour in the studio adjusting and perfecting their sound.

During the interview, the topic of Halsey was eventually brought up. Alex Pall told the interviewer that Halsey was an anticipated collaboration for The Chainsmokers. Pall was very complimentary of Halsey saying she was “cool,” “a unique artist,” and she has a “strong voice.”

Going forward, fans of The Chainsmokers should look out for even more changes to the way the band operates.
