Machine Gun Kelly ft. Kellin Quinn - Swing Life Away

By | about 3 years ago
Track: Swing Life Away
Producer: Cameron Mizell
Album: Black Flag

While Machine Gun Kelly has never made a secret of his punk influences—in addition to rocking a mohawk and extensive tattoos, he participated in the 2012 Warped Tour—hip-hop has always dominated his sound. On his latest video single, he shines a spotlight on that underemphasized side of his musical tastes, covering a cut by Chi-town punk mainstays Rise Against. Rather than choosing one of the group’s more aggressive numbers, he opts to put his own spin on acoustic ballad Swing Life Away. Featuring rapped verses, lush production by Cameron Mizell and passionate chorus vocals from Kellin Quinn, this joint has a more expansive vibe than its prototype, but nonetheless captures the original’s melancholy vibe. Charlie Zwick‘s official visuals round out the package. Fans can find this cut, the reader-approved Skate Cans and more on the artist’s Black Flag street album, out now online.
