The Chainsmokers became hugely popular in the United States of America and the United Kingdom some years ago. The band has been together since the start of their career as DJs and the rise of electronic music, and they have developed together and becoming a family.
In 2012, electronic music was starting to rise and amass a following. Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart had already begun following the progression of the music style and were already experienced with the DJ console. Alex Pall and Drew Taggart met in New York City. Both had dropped out of school to chase a dream in the music industry. They were matched together by their current manager who thought they would click well together.
Alex Pall is from Westchester County, New York. He moved to the city of New York in order to chaise his realization as a DJ. Andrew Taggart is from Freeport, Maine.He was introduced to the music when he was 15 in Argentina and has been passionate about electronic music ever since hearing David Guetta for the first time.
Even though The Chainsmokers was formed in 2012, the EDM-pop duo had their breakthrough a couple of years later in 2012 when their song #Selfie came out.
The song was in the Top 20 charts of several countries for weeks after that. When their EP Bouquet came out in October 2015, the single Roses which was included in it, was among the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100. Then they had the single called Don’t Let Me Down among the top five. The same song won the award Best Dance Recording of the Grammy. After that, their single Closer took a number one spot on that chart.
Their career reached its next stage when the duo started being recognized more. The Chainsmokers achieved two awards from the American Music Awards as well as five recognitions from the iHeartRadio Music Awards. The second album called College came out in November 2016 and then the year after in April they released Memories..Do Not Open. The Chainsmokers is now one of the most popular electronic music bands in the United Kingdom.
