Headlining a show at Colorado’s picturesque Red Rocks venue has become a rite of passage for artists both in the United States and abroad. On September 1, The Chainsmokers added this milestone to their continuously growing set of accolades. To celebrate, the two not only brought along an extravagant new stage set up, but also road-tested new IDs for their very receptive audience.
The two tracks depicted in the vides below indicate the duo’s continuing trend toward indie dance sounds, previously evidenced by their pop anthems “Don’t Let Me Down” and “Closer” with Halsey. The first centers around mild trap inspirations with pitched up vocals and emotive chords, while the second takes on a warm vibe, filled with exotic rhythms and instrumentation that translate well to the outdoor setting.
