In living color comes “Can’t Get Your Face Off My Mind” by the Initiative, whose highly-accomplished self-titled debut album from 2013 is the gift that keeps giving!

Composed by band member Joe Mandica and his son, guitarist Matthew, and featuring Joe’s daughter Natalie and her husband Zac Wilksch, “Can’t Get Your Face Off My Mind” is indeed a family affair. As proven by this immensely catchy song, talent certainly runs in the clan.

Natalie’s fine and friendly vocals emit a somewhat of a southern-fried fragrance, providing “Can’t Get Your Face Off My Mind” with a whiff of a country undercurrent. A slightly jazzy beat also houses the foundation, which involves a skin-tight rhythm section, tinkling ivories, and a shaking tambourine. Jingling with spunk and popping with affection, “Can’t Get Your Face Off My Mind” boasts all the essential nutrients required in a hit single.

Great to dance to and sing along with, “Can’t Get Your Face Off My Mind” is a song you won’t be able to get off your mind and that, of course, is a very good thing!
