The Chainsmokers is Stepping into the Dark Side of Music
Division, instability, uncertainty and mental health issues are common problems in modern society. People all over the world are dealing with these issues to one extent or another. When Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall of the Chainsmokers decided to release their latest music, they wanted to touch off on these issues which have impacted the U.S. and the rest of the world today. Their latest song is titled Sick Boy and it is an international jam that takes aim at the darker side of life.
Sick Boy is an intentionally dark song that addresses the maladies that are causing so much chaos and confusion in society. The song’s lyrics addresses people who live with a divided state of mind. It also touches off on how a lot of people have an opinion and expect people to listen to what they have to say. The song also states that people are narcissistic and that they live in self-imposed prisons where their way is always right. They also touch off on how things are so bad that people are desensitized to so many bad events.
Many people might thing that the Chainsmokers are going in the wrong direction with their music, but the truth is that they are not. The music that the Chainsmokers make has always been a reflection of the world around them. Their earlier hit songs such as Closer and Paris are tunes about love and romance. This is a valid part of life.
However, the current trend of horrific events and fear that is surging within society is causing many people to feel down about life. Americans by nature try to avoid the dark side. However, other cultures such as Germany, Czech Republic and Finland have a tendency to embrace it.
Many European countries find Sick Boy to be a big hit. They naturally enjoy this type of music and want more of it. Remember that many European nations have a tendency to listen to dark music. The Chainsmokers fans in the states do not hate this song but they are not up in arms about it either. Regardless, Sick Boy is a successful single that has went gold. The Chainsmokers continue on their road of successful hit songs to this day.
