The duo which made up the Chainsmokers have largely been celebrated and have gone through victorious and glorious moments of fame and wealth only the aspiring artist can dream of. They have done many works which abound inside the hearts and minds of those who immerse themselves inside of the musical creations bestowed upon them by none other than the Chainsmokers themselves. In actuality while the fame and wealth is all well and good, even inspiring, the Chainsmokers are actually just normal people like anyone else on this world. What made them stand out is that they had the grit and artistry to actually put their music out there for the musical public to lay their ears on. They also work tirelessly and endlessly inside of their craft in their hearts and inside of their mental states because it takes a lot of effort and energy to stay ahead of the pack when it comes down to making and creating good and easily enjoyable audio art. The two are loved and adored for their tracks inside the realms of intimacy and romance and the people who adhere to them also adhere to the beauty that is injected into the music that Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart are creating to stand out as a non-conformist group to the dry and void emotionless states electronic music usually feeds the masses. Sick Boy is one of those instant classics that take people thru the journey of what it is like to undo one’s self identity when approaching the masks that others are wearing online when people put their best foot forward on their online social profiles. The consequences of participating in such cultural rituals enable the slight yet toxic mental disease known as narccissm which puts an urgent pressure of the masses to be liked and loved by masses while the mask is up online for all to see and be convinced that the mask is the real person. The Chainsmokers expose and reveal that this is not the case and that the emptiness this creates is far more devastating than the allure of having to be liked by millions.
