EDM is now more popular than ever before and among those leading on this platform is The Chainsmokers. This DJ duo entered the international scene back in 2015 thanks to their hit single “Roses”. Over the two years, they have managed to release others including the dance tune “Don’t Let Me Down” with Daya which won a Grammy award. Their hit single with Halsey “Closer” took the No.1 spot in American music charts for over 12 weeks. Their new single “Sick Boy” seems to be sharing the DNA of their previously successful tunes as it has got a lot of good reception so far.
Dark themed music
Alex Pall and Drew Taggart, the (Electronic Dance Music) EDM DJ duo are also famously known for producing dark themed music. The new tune “Sick Boy” seems to be taking this dark-themed music trend to a new level. The Chainsmokers say that the darkness in the song is a recount of their struggles through their musical journey. Drew Taggart mentioned that the current world with social media is challenging not just for them but even for the kids growing through this era. The social pressure to live up to society’s standards and make people happy is what builds up this music. The DJ duo went on to say the nine-month break they had taken prior to the release of “Sick Boy” was a mind opening experience for them. This new single will mark a new chapter in their new realism centered music, which they will be focusing on from this point onwards.
