Earlier this week, EDM mystery man Marshmello announced that he would be joining the ranks of dance music’s darling label Monstercat during their 105th podcast, while debuting a new single titled “Alone.” Earlier today, the track hit the internet, giving fans their first chance outside of the podcast to hear it.
“Alone” is a classic Mello romp, opening with a plodding bass line that is shortly joined by a bouncy, synthesized melody. Marshmello delivers plenty of his signature brand of future bass, here filling the new release with screwed up vocal chops and pleasing sound design. The drops offer plenty of energy without sacrificing the upbeat vibes and chilled out melodies, and a catchy vocal croons “I’m so alone, try to find my way back home to you” during the breakdowns.
Overall, “Alone” serves as a strong debut for Marshmello on his new label and only helps to prove that Monstercat is the right home for the mystery producer.
