Short time ago Mix 106 received a press release from Alex and Drew of The Chainsmokers about their song Paris. So this installment will be from the artists themselves instead of us summarizing it for you!
“We are really excited about this song because it feels like a really big step in our production and song writing. We tried to switch it up a bit and the song feels a lot more rhythmic and we pulled a lot of inspiration from bands we grew up loving.
The song is actually about something very personal. Its about a friend of ours who struggled with a serious addiction and over the course of this lived in this fantasy world with his girlfriend thinking life was great and they were just down for each other thinking they were living in this wonderful day dream of a life but in reality their lives were falling apart as well as the people around them. But the song in a more general sense is about those times when you are one place in one situation but imagine you are somewhere else. Like those times you were laying in bed staring at the ceiling dreaming up a different situation.
We both went to college and might as well put those degrees to use a bit, so we dug deep into our English classes and put this definition of what the song means:
Paris – A sentimental yearning for a reality that isn’t genuine. 2: An irrecoverable condition for fantasy that evokes nostalgia or day dreams.
So as you can see its a very special song for us. Drew even shows off a little rap flow in the second verse if ya check it…
We really hope you enjoy it and share it and appreciate as always your time! We look forward to making 2017 even more incredible and continue to surprise you guys with new music from ya boyz!”
Thanks Alex and Drew!
