American indie-rock band The Greeting Committee shares new alt-rock anthem ‘Sort of Stranger’ featuring American singer, songwriter, and guitarist Briston Maroney
The new single “Sort Of Stranger” features Nashville-based singer/songwriter/guitarist Briston Maroney. A detailed piece of post-breakup reflection, “Sort Of Stranger” arrives as The Greeting Committee’s much-anticipated U.S. headline tour kicks of.
Like The Greeting Committee’s recently released sophomore album Dandelion, the track reveals frontwoman Addie Sartino’s gift for capturing the nuances of loss, an element channeled in her gorgeously poignant performance on “Sort Of Stranger.”
Sartino explains. “I’m so grateful we were patient with its growth, because that waiting period allowed us to have our friend Briston Maroney feature on it. He was the absolute missing puzzle piece to this track with both his voice and his beautiful lyricism. It only took a few text/voice memo exchanges for him to make the song just as much his at it is ours.”
Produced by Jennifer Decilveo (MARINA, FLETCHER, Bat for Lashes) and mixed by Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, Tame Impala), the final product is both crystalline in clarity and charged with raw emotion.
Maroney originally from Knoxville, the 24-year-old musician got his start busking at farmer’s markets, soon moved on to basement gigs, and self-released his debut EP Big Shot in 2017. After putting out a series of EPs written on his own, he then joined forces with co-writers like Manchester Orchestra’s Andy Hull and Dan Wilson for his full-length debut Sunflower. Released in 2021 and made with acclaimed producer John Congleton, Sunflower is gut-punch of fuzzy power chords, genteel acoustics, deftly-composed pop songs, and hard-charging rockers.
The Greeting Committee’s tour in support of Dandelion continues through April 9 in their hometown of Kansas City. With several dates in major cities already sold out (including a February 22 show at the legendary Troubadour in Los Angeles), the 20-date run includes an appearance at Noise Pop Festival in San Francisco on February 23 and a newly added second date at Globe Hall in Denver on March 3. Known for their explosive live performances, The Greeting Committee is eager to immerse their fans in their latest music, as it was intended to be enjoyed.
