The Chainsmokers’ Music Video Features No Negative “Side Effects”

Posted by eastcoop on

The Chainsmokers’ fifth single of the year, featuring Emily Warren who is a long time collaborator with the duo, features a realized fantasy of almost every overworked minimum wage employee. Camila Mendes, of Riverdale, appears in the video as a hotel employee. The video starts out with the all too familiar dismay of having a shift foisted upon the tired employee, but the tone quickly shifts when the group’s bubbly dance pop starts playing. Mendes, playing the character of Riley, rips off her uniform to reveal a pink, shimmery costume and proceeds to dance around the hotel and make the best out of a bad situation. ‘Riley’ certainly seems to enjoy herself on her unwanted shift as she bops through the neon lights of the hotel.

Having released their debut studio album, Memories… Do Not Open, in April of 2017, the Chainsmokers’ duo is currently working on their second album, Sick Boy. “Side Effects” is preceded this year by four other singles, including the titular track to their next album, “You Owe Me” and “Somebody” featuring Drew Love. One of the singles, “Everybody Hates Me”, was premiered as part of a live show in Prague. They have concerts scattered throughout the United States from August through October.

The Chainsmokers are an American EDM-pop duo comprised of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart. Pall, 33, is the duo’s DJ and hails from Westchester County, New York. Taggart, aged 28 from Freeport, Maine, is the producer, writer, and vocalist of the Chainsmokers. Their musical inspirations and influences include Pharrel Williams, Linkin Park, Taylor Swift, Blink-182, and deadmau5. The duo initially broke into the music scene in 2014 with their single “#Selfie” and achieved their first number-one single on the Billboard Hot 100 in “Closer” featuring Halsey. The Chainsmokers have collaborated with a number of other groups, including Coldplay and TiĆ«sto.

Whether you are an artist or a business driven entrepreneur, the phenomenon of co-working environments has now provided community based infrastructure that bolsters collaboration and communication between peers, already individually interested in advancing their visions. Recently, in March of 2016 a startup known as ‘WeWork’ raised an astounding four-hundred and thirty million. ‘WeWork’ has established a co-working platform that has been embraced by an upwards of forty-thousand people who pay rent to use the shared office locations provided by the company. That being said these environments are quite simply best for those who want to be surrounded by other like-minded people. In other words, these are professionals who want to be around other professionals, people whose drive and ambition can prove inspirational. Through renting areas one shares with others, people can not only mingle in a supported office space, but also have the chance to outsource work associated with the management of said environments. This gives people the chance to focus on their individual goals in stead of being bogged down by distractions related to the logistics surrounding maintaing a proper space for focus oriented folks looking pursue their actual interests and ambitions. Human beings feed off of each others energy, and those seeking shared work spaces are often looking for the motivation that is naturally generated from being around other hard working individuals. Productivity has been shown to increase inside environments made up of talented people looking to evolve with others open to the potential of networking and finding those with similar goals, leading to the possibility of partnership.

Another immensely popular and successful shared office space is Workville, based out of New York City. Workville is a particularly unique co-working environment. The company emerged in early 2016 and provides members with all the practical positive aspects of a shared space melded with luxury. Their office alone, is something to behold. Workville is located on the twenty-first floor within a stunning office building in the city’s bustling center. The environment is complete with spacial areas so things don’t become too claustrophobic, and includes terraces.

Workville is ultimately the ideal space for hardworking creatives and business people to work in unison to create a better future for us all.
