The unique style and music of Alex Paul

While growing up, Alex Paul spent his youth as a DJ. Initially a Hobby, it has allowed him to purchase a home in the Hollywood Hills. Built in the 1930’s, the bungalow home has slate floors and a tree that grows in the entry way, covering 3,600 square feet. Professionally decorated, each room is approached as its own unique space, and rather than being completely overhauled, Peti Lau, the New York based interior designer, incorporated the current decorations that Alex Paul already had in place, creating a personalized style throughout the home (https://www.wsj.com/articles/house-tour-when-a-rock-star-has-taste-1530292621).

 

While working at art galleries in New York, Alex was introduced to Drew, the other half of the chain smokers. They immediately hit it off and quickly found their rhythm. Drew moved from Maine, and Alex quit his day job. This is not to say it was without work. From 9am to 7pm every day, they were working together, finding their identities as artists and a creating their music. While they initially set out with the idea to make the music they like, both members of the group remark on how much their fans identify with their music. They want to further this relationship with their fans, so they are both exploring themselves more and where their music comes from. (https://www.interviewmagazine.com/music/the-chainsmokers)

 

Along with these feels comes their uncommon approach to the music they make. Uninterested in sticking to a genre, they are simply trying to make what they like, and others can categorize it as the please. While most of their peers do not sing on their tracks, Alex took the approach of, “Well, why not?” This also comes from the fact that both members of the Chainsmokers write their lyrics, or work closely with songwriters who do, further blurring the lines between genres of music, which makes sense, because they both grew up listening to several different kinds of music. This is not to say that they do not look for cohesion. They want their albums to make sense, and have the tracks relate to each other, rather than being an eclectic collection of tracks.
