If you can’t depend on a track by an artist titled Mindmassage to take you on a transcendental aural adventure, I’m not sure who you can rely on to alter your state of consciousness. There’s little use in trying to whack a genre label on their eclectically indulgent sound, simply let the layers of Funk, Hip Hop, Electro and Pop wash over you. As the lucidly orchestrated track unfolded, hints of 90s nostalgia started to hit, acting as an aural mode of transport to simpler sweeter times.
In addition to the velvety smooth vocals, the elements of spoken word contained within And Forever made the single infinitely more hypnotic. It seems fitting that Manchester-based producer and hypnotherapist would give you John Cooper Clarke vibes.
