The Chainsmokers, Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall, have a new offering for their loyal fans, which they released on the music airwaves on the 17th of January 2018. Their new dance track – “Sick Boy.” The song has a unique title and a rousing tune, which makes the listener wonder what is the precise tale behind “Sick Boy”, and what does the darker impression in their catalog connote.
“Sick Boy” is considered the audio remedy for music fans who are afflicted with the Chainsmokers’ fever. The energetic dance rock hymn detonated on the band’s label of Disruptor Records. The certified success of the duo’s platinum debut album Memories… Do Not Open produced quite a big pair of shoes to fulfill that featured their two hit songs “Something Just Like This” (with Coldplay) and “Paris.” Their song “Paris” shattered the music airwaves of the radio’s Top 40 that contains an auditory wallop on a love that is forbidden. And the subsequent “Something Just Like This” ruled likewise, gaining more than 996 million views on YouTube due to its energetic music and lyric-propelled video on not being a fabled hero in order to find love.
And here comes “Sick Boy” which provides other fascinating visualizations that one’s imagination can come up with. The song’s title should not be taken literally since it goes down deeper than going for a treatment in the doctor’s office. The “Sick” word according to the song is the personality crisis caused by the pressure the society imposes on an individual’s exposure to the social media.
And Alex Pall disclosed the following during his interview with Ryan Seacrest on iHeart Radio: according to Pall, narcissism is a common occurrence that each one of us see on a daily basis, and which we must live with due to everyone’s presence on the platforms of social media. Although being on social media is not actually a bad thing, one must try to see how he or she portrays himself or herself to the outside world. Because this is how others perceive us on the platform. Currently, this is an indispensable wickedness everyone must endure when conversing with the world at large.
