Start your week off right with this eclectic track featuring Mod Sun, Machine Gun Kelly, and Goody Grace.
The aggressive lyricism and vocal performance are gripping. Intense, personal, introspective, yet also pugnaciously standoffish. Machine Gun Kelly delivers the trademark attitude and emotion we’ve come to expect from any work bearing his name. The star of the show here is the raw, emotionally-rich vocals on display. The backing instrumentals and mix are pulling their weight in all the right ways, giving us a harsh melody that rises and falls in intensity. A warning filled with reflective regret, a Dear Jane letter that pulls no punches, this brought up buried memories of past relationships and hit us hard. But the ‘fuck it, fuck you, I’m moving on’ vibe brought us out of it. Dust your shoulders off, spit on the memory of that formerly special someone who let you down, and turn your speakers up till they burst playing “Stay Away.” Let there be no mistakes, and let this song say what you’ve always wanted to say.
