The Chainsmokers, in its current form, has been around since 2014. The release of “#Selfie” marked their entrance into the professional music industry, and in 2015, their debut EP, Bouquet, was released.

In 2017, The Chainsmokers released their first full length album. It was called Memories…Do Not Open.

One of The Chainsmokers’ newest records is “Somebody.” The Chainsmokers took to Facebook to share a behind the scenes glimpse with their fans. In the video posted to Facebook, fans can see the mixing process as the finishing touches are added to “Somebody.” In the video it was revealed that more in depth music making tutorials are on the way.

The video specifically showed a small bit of the music making process and it showed the lyrics being laid over the music. It was revealed, during the short video, that part of the lyrics to “Somebody” were originally meant for a different song. It is shown in the video some of the process behind tweaking this portion of the song, making it match the vocalizations in the rest of the track.

About Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall

Taggart was attending college in Maine before meeting Pall; Pall was working around the New York area, performing as a DJ. When Pall’s partner left and he realized that music was becoming the focal subject in his life, his manager introduced him to Taggart.

Andrew Taggart is the lead singer of the band; Alex Pall, along with Taggart, make the music. Together they create a sound that is truly theirs. Despite having their own sound, all of their music is different enough to not sound repetitive. The Chainsmokers have figured out how to make their own signature sound without making all of their music sound the same.
