The Chainsmokers have mentioned both Pharrell Williams and DJ Deadmau5 as influences on their sound. With spare, sharp beats, they captured the pop music zeitgeist. In retrospect, the single “#Selfie” looks almost like a false start. The true sound of the Chainsmokers wasn’t evident until their top 10 smash “Roses.” The duo have mentioned in interviews their praise for the alternative pop duo Twenty One Pilots. Like that duo, the music of the Chainsmokers crosses boundaries pulling in elements of pop and hip hop making it ultra-catchy with an infectious dance beat.
