Yvonne Glasgow I love the mellowness of this track. The song is hauntingly beautiful, while the instrumentation has a meditative feel to it. It will inspire you to want to read the book that inspired it (check out the lyrics and info listed here on their BC page).

Anders' music continues to amaze me. This track is one of my favorites so far.

Malika Dahl Soft voices and guitar strains start the journey into the new EP of Anders/O'Bitz. They tell the story of a mister Bevens, who is a lonely lad trying to make sense of life. The song carries a heaviness, which may be due to the story the lyrics tell. Or it may be created by the cacophony of guitar and vocals, which threads throughout the song.
Either way, the atmosphere is the same: a bit chaotic but still soft and tender.

dominicwilliams86 Anders/O'Bitz are very reminiscent of Green Day in their vocals which is great. Having never read the novel 'Lincoln in the Bardo' it's inspired me to read it. I love the ethereal sound of the vocal and the guitar together. A quality single.

Mr. Bevins does not like this matterbloomlight
We see this light when others say goodbye

Mr. Bevins does not call it the matterbloomlight
But how has it mattered for him
to say it right

We fear a long
Eternal night

Oh to matterbloomlight
I say it wrong
Bevins’s right

Oh can’t say goodbye
Stay too long
It ain’t right

Mr. Bevins says we cannot become this light
He may say this cuz he has too many eyes

Mr. Bevins seems to be blind to what is right
And this is why he will not say goodbye

He fears a long
Eternal night

Oh to matterbloomlight
I say it wrong
Bevins’s right

Oh can’t say goodbye
We’ve stayed too long
It ain’t right

Mmm, oh … oh

Oh to matterbloomlight
I say it wrong
But see it right

Oh please say goodbye
Our time is done
No more lies

Ah oh to matterbloomlight
I help him along
We get it right

Oh we say goodbye
Our time is done
Come alive
To matterbloomlight
