The Chainsmokers release their documentary ‘Memories’
The Chainsmokers have recently released their documentary called ‘Memories‘, recorded during their 2017 tour, in which fans follow the Americans and their life on the road, while they explain details about their rise to fame.
In March 2018, The Chainsmokers released a 6-episode series, showing the daily life of a world-class DJ act. Nevertheless, this 80-minute documentary portrays a more frank image, showing everything from ups and downs of touring, to Drew’s mental health problems. It includes footage from their ‘Memories: Do Not Open‘ tour, interviews with Coldplay’s Chris Martin and Zedd, as well as Alex and Drew’s mothers.
Over the years, the duo has put together quite the resume. October 2015 saw their debut EP, ‘Bouquet’, which contained their hit-single; ‘Roses‘ reaching the top 10 on the US Billboard Hot 100. ‘Don’t Let Me Down‘, featuring American singer Daya, became their first top 5 single on the Billboard chart and won a Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording at the 59th Grammy awards. Their debut album, ‘Memories: Do Not Open‘, arrived in 2017, featuring the likes of Emily Warren, Jhene Aiko, Florida Georgia Line, and hit singles ‘Paris‘ and their Coldplay collaboration; ‘Something Just Like This‘.
Now more so than ever, artists are releasing these type of films & documentaries, to show their more personal sides and stories – an honest way to create a deeper connection, while realizing that as humans we all suffer from the same personal issues.
