Artists have strong personalities and an intense truculence in their vision that they don’t want it to be dampened. They don’t want anyone to ruin what they want to put out in the world. They can sometimes be froward when it comes to what they demand, and they don’t always follow the rules. This is the exact dynamics being faced by the duo band, The Chainsmokers.
The New Music Becomes Darker
There’s romanticism in going dark, macabre and slightly revolting when one is trying to make an artistic work. We learn from an article in Forbes that it’s also the artist’s predilection to always create the most original work possible. In the case of The Chainsmokers, they promise that their music would be even darker and would be resembling the state of incessant chaos that they feel the country is experiencing. It’s also noteworthy to ascertain that this desire to go dark isn’t just for the gimmick. There are artists who appear like a curmudgeon when they vent out negative emotions in their music, but what makes The Chainsmokers’ work different is the fact that they value their lyrics so much that they won’t compromise it for the need to have a powerful EDM beat. This is something that The Chainsmokers is known to push, but it is also something that it does so well in pulling off.
