With a song for every emotion and season of life, Dandelion continues to be a go-to album for my day-to-day existence. Driving up and down A1A, I blast “Make Out” through my one car speaker. Yes, one car speaker, because the other speaker is blown out from my many other therapeutic jam sessions. The salty wind blows through my hair as I sing “Let’s just make out / What’s the harm now?”
After chatting with The Greeting Committee, I instantly set a reminder on my phone for the album release. The band’s energy and passion was evident through the screen and I was inspired by their vulnerability.
Lead singer Addison Sartino and I both have Leo placements in our birth charts and both agreed it's easy for us to be vulnerable. Us Leos do love talking about ourselves. For Sartino, this vulnerability was shown easily through her songwriting.
As a 22-year-old, I also could relate to 23-year-old Sartino who spoke about watching her life a lot of days instead of living it. With graduation around the corner, I definitely feel as If I am going through the motions and feel lost. The unknown future can be scary and feeling the pressure, even at a young age, to find and reach your fullest potential.
A lot of The Greeting Committee’s new album Dandelion touches on grief, breakups, and life itself. Dandelion is one of those albums that puts what you are feeling into words.
Their song “Make Out” on their new album Dandelion has become a favorite of mine and when I first heard it during the press conference I knew I would be listening to the song on repeat. A more upbeat, quirky vibe compared to the other songs on Dandelion, “Make Out” shares how love can be innocent and carefree. “She's eating pickles from a jar, I think I love her / That girl I met inside a bar in East Virginia.”
Go add “Make Out” by The Greeting Committee to your current Spotify, car jam-session playlist. You can thank me later.
