DJ duo The Chainsmokers break ground in new track

Only two months ago, Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall, the DJ duo that make up The Chainsmokers, released their worldwide hit “Closer,” featuring the vocals of Halsey.

The track has barely made it onto the radio and the duo is back with another hit-to-be, this one featuring the vocals of Phoebe Ryan and Taggart.

“All We Know” was released on Sept. 29, and is just as good as “Closer” and all of the duo’s previous songs.

The new song is more subdued than “Closer,” but almost seems to carry on the storyline of the previous hit.

“Closer” is about two exes meeting up again, while “All We Know” addresses the emotions of a dying love. “All We Know” seems to uproot all the dark longing and heartache that ensues after the excitement of a rekindled love, however short-lived it may have been.

“We’re falling apart, still we hold together/We’ve passed the end, so we chase forever/’Cause this is all we know.” Ryan and Taggart sing these sorrowful together as they build to the beat drop which, in this case, is less wild and intense as seen in The Chainsmokers’ previous work.

The song is an ingenious mix emotional lyrics and current music trends.

Whether you’re a fan of EDM or not, The Chainsmokers’ talent for collaboration and conveying emotion through song is undeniable. The two have an ear for stringing beats and lyrics together and creating not only songs perfect for dancing, but tracks that evoke emotion and convey a truly enticing story.
