Adiós Ghost – “Tension”
A Spill Exclusive Canadian Music Premiere
It’s hard to talk about Adiós “Tension” as an individual song without talking about the Endless Return EP as a whole. The idea of the endless return is about realizing that there may be no objective truth, and all that has happened will happen again in an endless cycle of return–all ideas that one would think lead directly to nihilism. But instead of descending down that path, one can decide that all of this simply means the individual must construct their own sense of meaning in life. In other words, none of it reduces the necessity of meaning to human existence. The whole process–recognizing the cyclical nature of things, feeling a sense of meaninglessness as a result, and then resolving to construct one’s own sphere of meaning–starts with the spark of that first scary realization, a point of “Tension” when your ego slams up against your anonymity. And so “Tension” is the lead-off track, the entry point into the cycle of Endless Return.
