The Chainsmokers have jump started the year 2018 with their darkest song yet called “Sick Boy”. Anyone who follows the Chainsmokers knows that their music is usually a peek into their lives and what’s going on around them. The new single “Sick Boy” is a dance-rock tune that tells a story of how life is for them now. There will be a few more dark tracks to follow on the new album. The Chainsmokers lately have talked about how tough it is having a life in the spotlight where people’s opinions of them are based on an interpretation of not only their music but the opinions of others who don’t know them personally. They have referenced the new day of technology where everyone has to wear a mask from the social media perspective. The younger generations will be focused on an internet standard and that is a scary place to be. They are not afraid of the challenge, however, saying that they are very much on the track to keep being successful and they plan to stay innovative to keep their relevant status in the music industry.
