Black Hibiscus teams up with Anna Fix for soothing new single 'Matthew'



Turning the sadness of waving goodbye to a friend into an eery, yet blissful slice of dream-pop; Lagos-native Black Hibiscus has recruited Anna Fix for his newest single, 'Matthew'.


A spacious, delicately arranged soundscape of reverb-soaked guitars interweaving piano – 'Matthew' shifts the focus onto the luscious harmonies of Black Hibiscus & Anna's carefully contrasting vocals. Equal parts ethereal and moody, it's nothing short of a breathtaking release filled with sentimentality.


"The song is an ode to a friend that is gone," tells Black Hibiscus. "In real life my best friend Matthew is leaving for a year, and I may never live with him again, so in a way it is a goodbye to him but in the song the fictional character "Matthew" dies and leaves the singer unwhole so I hope the song evokes a feeling of longing and heartbreak at the loss of someone important to you."
