In 2012, the members of the Chain-smokers duo were introduced to each other by their manager. At the time, the idea was to have them work together on one project, after which they would part ways. However, as fate would have it, the two did their gig, and then realized that they had great chemistry between them. As a result, they decided they were going to transform their temporary arrangement into something more permanent, and thus the band was born. Six years later, the little-known band has become a household name, and the future is getting brighter by the day. Here is an interview that the duo gave about their journey and the secrets that have fueled their success.
When Andrew was asked about his musical journey, he stated that he started developing a keen interest in electrical pop when he was in college. He adds that as he was going about his gigs, he was informed that there was a band called chain smokers, and one of their members was leaving. He told his manager that he would be interested in seeing what type of music the band was creating, and from the moment he met Alex, everything just clicked.
On the other hand, when Alex was asked about his musical journey, he stated that as he grew up, hos only dream was to be a successful DJ. He added that when he was introduced to electrical dance music, he immediately developed an interest. With time, he decided to give a career in music a shot. When he met with Andrew, they connected, and the magic started happening for Chain Smokers.
The band has released some songs, but it was their single ‘selfie’ which catapulted them to fame. The duo believes that working in their field is not easy, mainly because there are so many others within the field and getting a unique connection with the audience is complicated. They state that their secret has been creating music that their listeners connect with at an emotional level and that this has helped them win the hearts of audiences across the country.
