From Production Duo to Band – An Interview with Alex Pall

One of the many collaborators that have worked with The Chainsmokers is Halsey. She teamed up with Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall for “Closer,” one of the biggest songs created by The Chainsmokers.


The song was historic because it was the first time either of The Chainsmokers performed the vocals on their own song. In the past, The Chainsmokers were a production group, relying on other artists to work with them to provide vocals for their tracks. Now, with Andrew Taggart acting as front man, the career of The Chainsmokers can only improve.


During the promo tour for “Closer,” Alex Pall conducted an interview where he revealed the origin story of The Chainsmokers, discussed future music, and talked about how their live show may be changing in the future. He also talked about Halsey, describing her as incredible, cool, and unique.


Pall said music was taking over his life, even before he was introduced to Andrew Taggart. Taggart was going to college in Maine when Pall’s manager contacted him and set up a meeting between the two musicians.


“So I took the bus down to New York City from Maine, where I’m from, and met Alex,” said Andrew Taggart, who was also in attendance for the interview.


According to Alex Pall, both members of the group knew things would work out fine from the beginning. Their first couple of times seeing each other consisted of conversations about important topics like music interests and motivations. This lead to a trusting understanding of each other because they knew each other had similar goals and ambitions.


“It was like 9 AM to 7 PM,” Alex Pall said. “We got together every day and worked on music and created out identity as artists.”


As previously stated, they also talked about their live show, telling the interviewer about the progress possible due to having a new lead singer.


[“Closer”] is going to dramatically change the way our shows work,” said Alex Pall. The Chainsmokers will be able to deliver fans a more streamline concert experience now that the band has an official lead singer.
