The Chainsmokers drop surprise new track, are actually just a band now
The Chainsmokers have dropped a surprise video for a new song “Sick Boy.”
The clip shows the duo leaning into the instrument-heavy lineup they’ve been championing of late — a musical affect that seems more akin to Twenty One Pilots than any of their EDM ‘peers.’
“How many likes is my life worth?” moans producer Drew Taggart who serves as the vocalist in the clip while co-producer Alex Pall bangs away at a piano and a drummer keeps the song alive.
While the track is sure to delight the group’s more recent fans, it’s a notably major departure from the progressive house remixes that brought them into prominence.
