The Chainsmokers: From #Selfie to Sick Boy

In 2014, The Chainsmokers had begun to make a name for themselves with the release of their smash hit “#Selfie”, a simple dance track that had gone viral due to its silly yet infectious nature. However, their most successful track, 2016’s “Closer” featuring Halsey, had gone number 1 on Billboard’s charts and was a massive worldwide success. It established The Chainsmokers as a force to be reckoned with, and this year, they are back to prove that they are here to stay.

Their newest single, “Sick Boy”, a dance-pop track, goes into serious themes beyond love and dancing. While the title suggests it may be about a child with illness, it’s actually about the dependence on social media.

A sample from the song:

“I’m from the east side of America

Where we choose pride over character

And we can pick sides, but this is us, this is us, this is

I live on the west side of America

Where they spin lies into fairy dust

And we can pick sides, but this is us, this is us, this is”

Social media has become part of our everyday lives, and it consumes almost all of our days when we aren’t working. The amount of likes and retweets that we receive are what is most important to us, but does it truly matter? That’s what makes this song so unique and magical. The targeted audience for their music is primarily young adults, which is perfect for the song’s meaning. This form of purposeful pop music” has become more and more popular, and rightfully so. Incorporating meaningful lyrics alongside catchy melodies helps us become more self-aware while enjoying great music. The song, which is now available on all music platforms, also has an official music video! Give it a listen.

The 1980s were a time when heavy metal drummers were almost as well known as the lead singers of the bands they played with; for Cassio Audi, the heroes of his teenage years were Iron Maiden drummers Clive Burr and Nicko McBrain. As a drummer in the Brazilian city of Sao Paulo, Audi had already begun playing with different bands when he was asked to join a group of his fellow Iron Maiden fans in the creation of the band, Viper.

Moving into the conservative world of finance may have seemed a long way to move in 1985 when Viper began creating impressive demo recordings leading to their signing to the Rock Brigade label and the 1987 recording of the album, “Theatre of Fate”. Cassio Audi toured with Viper and played an integral role in creating an early sound heavily influenced by British heavy metal bands such as Viper who created much of the early buzz still surrounding Brazilian heavy metal more than three decades later.
