Folk/Roots Duo, Eric Anders and Mark O’Bitz, have collided and brought their musical synergy to life throughout their latest single, “Matterbloomlight”. Beginning with a soft stroke of instrumental wonder, “Matterbloomlight” is abounding with the unique feel of the natural world creeping into the digital world as Eric and Mark lyrically reach for the light within themselves beyond their current jaded sense of self.
Having met Mark O’Bitz at one of his solo shows back in Pasadena in 2002, Eric begin to find intrigue in music beyond his known and had never dabbled into creating music of his own prior to his meeting with Mark. Over time, the two’s creative visions came together fluidly and that very fact sticks out like a sore thumb throughout “Matterbloomlight”. Having released their highly-praised full length, ‘Of All These Things’, back in June, Mark and Eric are keeping the train rolling with a soft and ethereal single release that suits their harmonious musical alliance.
“Matterbloomlight” is the perfect track to provide comfort in both a period of transformation and change. Eric Anders has been one to express himself in a excruciatingly bold and honest manner, and that’s what keeps us traveling back into his works of art. If you’re a fan of a mixture of fellow musicians such as Old Crow Machine Show, Bon Iver and Of Monsters and Men, then keep an eye on the ride ahead for Eric Anders and Mark O’Bitz on Bandcamp.
