«Acedia» designates a state of torpor, the exhaustion of one’s soul and beliefs. It is the title of One Sentence.
Supervisor’s third album. The phenomenon of acedia finds its roots in the pre-Middle Ages. Transposed to our times, it could be described as the dull discomfort one feels when flying to Barcelona for 25 Euros, before randomly ending up in a climate strike on the way to the beach bar. At the end of the day, we all know our lifestyle is a farce and that its price is way higher than what we could possibly imagine. How do we respond to our privilege? And to what extent do we really care about the world?
One Sentence. Supervisor are now a five-piece band and are back with new songs. On «Acedia», they sing the constant inner struggle between one’s powerlessness, hopes and fears.
