The Greeting Committee Drop Breezy New Indie-Rock Single “Cyclical”

A breezy yet vulnerable track off their upcoming album

Kansas City’s indie-rock band The Greeting Committee unleashed their latest single, “Cyclical.” The breezy yet vulnerable track comes off the band’s upcoming new album, Everyone’s Gone and I Know I’m The Cause, set for release on June 21. 

On “Cyclical,” frontwoman Addie Sartino gets personal as her auratic vocals lead amongst gentle guitars and guiding drums, reflecting on the tedious cycle of family trauma. While the single is socially buoyant, the lyrics question how to break out of imposed habits and create a new reality for one’s life. “‘Cyclical,’ talks about being stuck in a horrible cycle,” Sartino says. “It’s me seeing a pattern and doing the brave and hard thing by cutting certain habits or people out of my life. It might suck, but that’s what growing up and healing is and that’s what needed to happen for everybody.

Following the release of their previous albums and EPs, a lineup change, parting ways with their longtime manager, and personal grief and breakups, Sartino and Turcotte were ready to create an album of songs that just “feel good.” Ultimately, The Greeting Committee hopes that the concept of change becomes a constant in the band’s DNA; that they are forever growing as a band, feeling things as they come, and creating music that matters as much to them as it does to their listeners. “I lived in fear for so long, I grew up inside of it,” says Sartino. “I was afraid if I didn’t hold tightly enough, if I didn’t struggle enough, if I didn’t sacrifice enough that I wouldn’t be enough. And if I couldn’t be enough then how could I ever deserve this? But I promise you, the things and the people that are meant for you will always believe you are enough.”
