BOSTON, MA-Boston singer-songwriter/soulful folk/pop artist, Mel Fine, releases their sophomore single, “Alone Together”, an emotional yet catchy story of love and yearning, detailing the insecurities of a long-distance relationship… I wonder if you miss me like you promised. Maybe I should just quit. Stop and let the distance grow between us.
Two different coasts

CA called and you had to go back home
“Alone Together” is a masterfully crafted song that showcases the pop genre at in its most stripped back, yet vibrant and modern form. The song opens up with incredible acoustic guitar work and soft, soulful vocals that are reminiscent of pop icons such as Adele.
As it progresses with a rhythmic foundation that is bound to make anyone start dancing, “Alone Together” transitions into a stunningly beautiful chorus that truly shows Mel’s vocal range through swift, ascending and descending melodic hooks.
Mel Fine's quarantine-crush confession, “Alone Together”, is the vibe-driven, guilty pleasure track many can relate to. With its infectious melody, honest storytelling, and masterfully positioned melodic hooks, the song brings new meaning to being alone together. The song demonstrates crafted layering of sweet melodic harmonies, falsetto runs, and perfectly placed background vocals. It brilliantly cascades through the emotions reverberating from one coast to another, on a love which won't fade despite the great distance between them.
It is a wonderfully produced track, full of complex vocal harmonies and layers of delicate and dynamic instrumentation, and transitions of smooth and effortless falsetto runs, which support the epic chorus.
“Mel Fine’s musical prowess is a result of not only their tasteful blend of pop melody and harmony, but also from their natural ability to hear sounds. Working with Mel on this last track was a great example of how Fine reaches for rich elements to infuse their new singles with fresh yet quality textures and sounds. I see big things happening for Mel, producing this latest track, “Alone Together”, and has shown how promising the future is ahead.” -Lit Honey Productions
