The Chainsmokers releases the music video for their creative single, “Paris.”
“We are really excited about this song because it feels like a really big step in our production and song writing,” stated Alex. “We tried to switch it up a bit and the song feels a lot more rhythmic and we pulled a lot of inspiration from bands we grew up loving.”
“Paris” showcases a gumbo of music stylings from the hot duo, which continues to raise their stock as a magical production team. Drew even shows off a little rap flow in the second verse.
“The song is actually about something very personal,” Alex added. “Its about a friend of ours who struggled with a serious addiction and over the course of this lived in this fantasy world with his GF thinking life was great and they were just down for each other…but in reality, their lives were falling apart as well as the people around them.”
