It’s pointless to deny ‘ popularity — especially after their debut . All this success, however, stands in the face critical responses that range from alo indifference to vicious derision — many outlets are already calling the duo’s the worst LP 2017 already.
Now, it appears, an enterprising individual out there has discovered the formula for The Chainsmokers’ brand commercial, if not critical, success. The amusing video features a man playing a series extremely basic chord progressions, while talking about the common threads that seem to underly every track in the duo’s catalogue. Not only does this video successfully prove how uninspiring and dull the duo’s music is — to say nothing their repetitiveness — but also how criminally easy it is to write a hit EDM anthem in modern times.
