“So baby pull me closer in the backseat of your Rover
That I know you can’t afford
Bite that tattoo on your shoulder
Pull the sheets right off the corner
Of the mattress that you stole
From your roommate back in Boulder
We ain’t ever getting older.”
You definitely blasted your speakers with the song ‘Closer’ from the ultimate EDM Band, The Chainsmokers. Now is your chance to be closer to them than ever before, as they are coming to India, this September. So block the dates on your calendar, 7th & 8th September in Mumbai and New Delhi and get ready to sway along to their energetic beats.

Collaboration between the band, Coldplay and The Chainsmokers! Need I say more? This was a match made in heaven.

The text messaging style was incorporated with a twist and this upbeat song targeted the main trend of selfies. A female clubber is repeatedly shown saying “Let me take a selfie” in the music video to highlight the magnitude of the selfie phenomenon. Not only the crazy trend of selfies but the light-hearted lyrics and the upbeat tunes made everyone groove to this song for the longest time.
