Interview with a Chain Smoker: The Transcendent Nature of Alex Pall

In a recent interview with, Chainsmoker lead Alex Pall discussed the unique nature of his track “Closer” and the evolution of his art. Pall, with his bandmate Andrew Taggart, discussed the ever-changing landscape of contemporary music, as well as how to provide a humanistic element to an art form that is often seen as void of emotion. Pall and Taggart intend to break the mold of the largely unemotional world of EDM and use their eclectic style and unique artistic history to do just that.

As the music industry evolves, more and more artists are willing to step outside of their specific genre and/or style to produce music meant to entrance and delight its listener. Pall and Taggart, already known for their experimental nature and style-bending sound, want to make it clear that they are willing to step onto whatever musical stage fits them best, and “Closer” is a perfect example of that. Pall and Taggart introduced the hypnotic voice of the singer Halsey into their newest single, whose haunting vocals cascaded over hedonistic rhythms to create a sound intoxicating to the ear.

Pall and Taggart, according to a recent interview, hope to continue to break into various realms of music, and continue to evolve his style “…it’s constantly a journey of self-discovery and checking yourself,” Pall states, and his music mirrors this sentiment exactly.

Pall’s artistic nature does not remain fixated on just music; the other elements of his life mirror his eclectic style and genre-bending nature as well. Before becoming an international sensation, Pall worked at an art gallery in Manhattan, and his exposure to contemporary and classical art bleeds into his music as well as his personal life. His home is a hodgepodge of architectural styles, and his fashion choices can be seen as elegant and eclectic, just like his songs.

Pall continues to transfix the world with his music, his style, and his unconventional lifestyle, and one cannot help but be excited to watch the continuous evolution of him as an artist. There is nowhere to go but up with the Chainsmokers, and judging from Pall’s work to date,
