Eric Anders & Mark O’Bitz’s Matterbloomlight Shakes Up The Power Of A History Connection In Latest Track

21 Oct

With the track sounding so reminiscent of appalachia rock, Matterbloomlight showcases a lightness and heaviness all at the same time. Standout lyrics such as “we cannot become this light” point to the metaphor of eternal life. Eric Anders & Mark O’Bitz have a history of making music together on and off, now reunited again. Unlike shifting out of collaborating with each other, these two have been a huge part of each other’s musical careers. Their fusion of talents on this single should prepare listeners for nothing but good things on their upcoming album Ghosts To Ancestors. Matterbloomlight pays homage to George Saunders’ novel Lincoln In The Bardo. For those unfamiliar with Saunders’ novel, it takes place all in one night, set in bardo. Bardo, a Tibetan term for the Buddhist principle describing the time spent between life and rebirth. With the spiritual significance and their collaborating magic, listeners are anticipating what the next road in the journey will be for these two and what they create.
