Eager, earnest and compelling may be the first set of words that could describe the song “Somebody” by The Chainsmokers. But that may not be the case. Besides, music is subjective, which means that what people may feel about the message of a particular song, could for another person listening to it be entirely different. But in the case with the single “Somebody”, The Chainsmokers members Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall might have settled the ambiguity by showing the fans the actual creative process of producing the song.
An article from The Billboard news portal showed The Chainsmokers uploading a video with clips of Taggart and Pall playing the piano and synthesizing some tracks on their computer. It’s a fun video that both welcomes the fans into the quiet but productive creative world of the EDM duo, as well as show them a short tutorial in song production. It’s a generous and intensive tutorial video that would certainly amuse and educate a lot of fans. Composing music is tireless and takes a lot of energy, so the Facebook upload of the two in how they create their songs can be a refreshing break.
