The Chainsmokers are the perfect summer act. The music that they create is dancy, catchy and usually upbeat. It’s the kind of music that you want to blast from a car with the roof down on your way to the beach. That’s why this band has picked the perfect time to engage their fans once again. They’ve recently released a teaser to their new song “Somebody.”
The teaser comes in the form of a video clip. It shows Andrew Taggart playing around with all sorts of instruments including the piano, keyboards and synthesizers. The video is about a minute long and gives you a behind the scenes look at just how the sausage is made.
It all starts off on the piano. Drew carefully plays out a high-pitched melody before playing a more complex set of chords. It then moves over to the keyboards where a baseline is laid down and manipulated. The ends of each base section are warped in pitch to give the song a modern feel.
Then it’s on over to the computer where Drew explains that the vocals recorded for “Somebody” were actually meant for a different song. He plays out the original recording which sounds about two steps too low for the catchy new single. You then get to watch him as he modifies the vocals to match the upbeat “Somebody.”
The video clip is rather short but it shows you just how committed the Chainsmokers are to their craft. And it makes you realize just how hard these two have worked to achieve their international success. If you want proof of their commitment to dance music excellence then just take a trip to Vegas where they play to exuberant crowds regularly.
And it’s a great time to catch them as they have just come off a legendary performance at Ultra Miami 2018. Spotify has also notified the electronic music duo that their second hit has been streamed more than 1 billion times. And, to cap it all off, they are the first Dance Artist/DJ to be named to the Billboard New Dance 100 List.
