There’s a lyric in The Chainsmokers song “Paris” that says something like, “Let’s show them we are better”. Let’s show them that we are better than anything that they could imagine. While this is just a lyric of a famous song co-written by Alex Pall, it might make sense to say here that if The Chainsmokers goes down, it would have been because of how Alex Pall is doing all that he can to show them that he is way better.
Show Them We Are Better
When Alex Pall in his interview at The Interview Magazine shared that he is always pursuing what’s good for his artistry and his band The Chainsmokers, we probably didn’t know about its details. We didn’t know about the price, sacrifice, and things that would make it hard for him to succeed amidst competition. But in the effort to show the world that what Alex Pall is to offer is better than the rest, he is continually writing the best lyrics and songs to make sure that the world sees the world through the musical lens of The Chainsmokers.
The Fear Behind The Success
All that Alex Pall knows when he writes his songs is the fact that he just wants to make people feel things that to him are the only things that are sure about himself. He even says it in his lyrics that feelings are all that we know, and sharing all the truth of the feelings that Alex Pall gets in the journey to creating his music is what he is continually polishing today.
However, this did not happen overnight. Alex Pall had to face a lot of fears of living in a big city in New York and the standard fears that one gets when one is a struggling artist. All of these fears are now paying off, though, because Alex Pall’s seed in growing The Chainsmokers has now been seen as one of the great contributions to making EDM music more than just a platform for dance and parties. It is now officially a platform for an artful expression that’s more high-brow without appearing preachy.
