It’s been a few months since Machine Gun Kelly unleashed his epic music video-style film, Downfalls High, but the man is far from slowing down it seems. Together with Travis Barker, the two are proving to be two of music’s biggest and busiest duo right now. The pair have just unleashed a brand new single, ‘love race’ and yes — it’s another collaboration. This time, they’ve teamed up with Sleeping With Sirens frontman Kellin Quinn.
Quinn is no stranger to collaborations either, having put his voice on a plethora of upcoming bands within the last year or so, including Australia’s own Patient Sixty-Seven. Yet his vocals just hit so different and adds something more to a pop punk track (remember his feature with Good Charlotte?) ‘love race’ is a pop punk anthem through and through, with catchy riffs and ‘Whoa-Ohhs’ and Barker doing his thing as always. It’s light-hearted and fun, just the way a song of this calibre should be.
I don’t know about you, but I feel like it kinda hits almost as hard as ‘Forget Me Too’. Close, but not quite!
