“Music is such a crazy powerful thing,” declares one half of the EDM duo The Chainsmokers, Andrew Taggart. Andrew and bandmate Alex Pall took to the WE Day California stage with music in their hearts and motivation on their minds. Standing up as proof that following one’s passion can take you to great heights, the pair spoke enthusiastically backstage when asked about the impact of honest song writing. For the musicians, they hope tracks like their recent hit “Sick Boy” will help fans “identify some of the things that are going on in [their] head and heart.” Written with the scope of current social pressures in mind, the song—like the artists—harnesses the zeitgeist and encourages self-reflection.
