The Chainsmokers are back with a new single, “Sick Boy.” After a nine month break, the duo looks to change direction with their new project.

The Chainsmokers have had massive success in the last few years, dominating the top charts. The 2016 collaboration with Halsey on “Closer” held the number one spot for 12 weeks.

The anticipation for their new project is huge, but the band clearly isn’t affected by the hype. Right on time, they deliver a fantastic new song that excites current fans and hooks in new ones.

Choosing to forgo traditional romantic elements, the duo looks to blaze new paths on their next album. Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall tackle the frustration they’ve felt dealing with topics such as social media and fame.

The frustration can be felt on the heavy “Sick Boy.” The track begins with Taggart delivering vocals addressing narcissism and life in America. His lyrics are accompanied by a solo piano, which slowly builds into repeating synths.

The beat drops into a gritty bass that follows throughout the chorus. Taggart repeats lines about narcissism in American culture, pouring out his feelings. The lyrics continue building emotion, and the track finally returns back to the solo piano, finishing right where they started.

The political and social commentary provided on the single is refreshing. Instead of continuing with their success, The Chainsmokers chose to tackle new ideas. Rather than becoming focused on the success of their albums, they simply continue making music they love.

Visually, the music video is striking and emotional. The backdrop is dark, and the scene is flooded with a brooding atmosphere. The fantastic art direction of the video ties the track up perfectly.

The Chainsmokers are looking to shake things up with “Sick Boy.” Extremely different from there previous ventures, they keep it entertaining with perfect execution.
