Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart are both masterminds in the area of making beautiful music that inspires and continues to uplift the masses with their powerful messages and resounding meanings behind what it is that they write exactly. The Chainsmokers have done it again with their new hit called Sick Boy. Sick Boy was recently made for the sole purpose of addressing a topic of a much darker side than their ladder pieces of music. It is a similar combination of the multiple genres which comprise The Chainsmoker’s underlying soundscape, but the choice of words took an upside down turn over due to the depth of their work. Instead of the nostalgic, bitter sweet, and romantic writing the two artists would immerse themselves in they complied a deeper and more blunt approach to the honest compositions that reflected a travesty too big for the world running companies to do about it even if they wanted to. This subject matter involves the social media complex that has trapped people in isolation and sometimes severe loneliness away from everyone else who freely enjoys real companionship with actual face to face conversations. The whole epidemic of putting likes on Facebook and Instagram as the centre of one’s whole world is sadly deceiving to the individual who is sucked into this frame of thinking. They are not using social media. Social media is using them, and The Chainsmokers are the alarm bells telling everyone that this is something to be aware of, even if no one can put an end to this movement of millennial communication. Yes, the next generation would be the people who need to listen to Sick Boy because rather than install corrupted values into the hearts and minds of the youth, Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart warn of the dangers with ”using” social media which in actuality is a fraudulent form of human intimacy in not just being overly mechanical but also borderline destructive to the development of 16 to 18 year olds who are trying to find themselves while simultaneously needing to be liked by a million people at once. Nonetheless the Chainsmoker’s work have excited the people with their all together very informative and also vigorously entertaining song that is the Sick Boy.
