The Chainsmokers exploded into the public consciousness with their 2014 viral hit “#SELFIE,” a Melbourne bounce-style club banger that served as something of a social commentary on the narcissism present in the culture of social media. Musically, it had all the predictable features of a dance hit, with mind bending risers and bouncy synth drops.

But in the last few months, the DJ duo’s output has been receiving an upheaval, with their style evolving in a more melodic direction. This is most evident in their recent song, the uplifting “Roses” ft. Rozes. The song features a steady mid-tempo beat, and summery synth chords that roll beneath Rozes voice. The Chainsmokers apparently helped pen the lyrics, as well.

Give the track a listen below...

The Chainsmokers are completely upfront about their desire to keep their fans guessing as to their stylistic choices behind their music, as evident from this tweet.
