The Chainsmokers Latest Single “Sick Boy” Sets a New Tone for the Pop/EDM Duo

The Chainsmokers are making some headlines for the newest single “Sick Boy”. Beyond the single winning the favor of some of the more reputable critics in show business, the title is a change of pace of the duo. The Chainsmokers ran the risk of being mistaken for one-trick ponies. The duo has elaborately tip-toed the line between being a hit pop band and an underground EDM empire. Their hits have been flying for the last few years, and they seem to have had daily play on all of the major pop stations. In the clubs, that success was multiplied with their dance hits and pop hits synergy that offers the complete EDM experience.

“Sick Boy” is a little different. The newest single from duo Alex Pall and Drew Taggart is a darker more symphonic hit about the life of social media. The new song draws from the pressures of fame and the social media fetishization of people in the entertainment industry. The darker hit serves as a great accompaniment to previous work mocking similar ideas such as #Selfie and Kayne.

Let’s be clear; the Chainsmokers aren’t mocking social media, they are simply fully aware of the dangers surrounding it. After all, the duo actively takes part in social media on a consistent basis. Their new song is just a reflection of those experiences in a dark angry way. The band has worked on some darker material before. Whether or not you are aware of it, Logic’s massive hit “1-800-273-8225” was partially written by Taggart, and the song is definitely one of the darker hits of the last decade.

Times seem to be shifting. Taggart and Pall are just following that shift. Social media once gave people false hope, not it’s looking like the depression era is kicking in. With most modern pop music lending itself towards more depressing, dark undertones, Chainsmokers hit is in good company. Hopefully, this newest hit shows the world that the duo is far more than happy-go-lucky hits. The duo is coming out as true artists in the EDM/Pop fusion scene.
