The Greeting Committee's full-length debut This Is It is a coming-of-age story in album form, a reflection on growing up but defiantly holding onto a certain innocence. All between the ages of 19 and 21, the Kansas City-based band delivers an undeniably original selection of songs that feel as intimate as a basement recording but unfold in intricate textures and melodic sophistication. And with her delicate yet powerful vocals, Sartino instills This Is It with an openheartedness that transcends age and time, bringing both dreamy sensitivity and wide-eyed wisdom to every track. "A lot of the album is about that point when you get to 19 or 20 and look around only to ask yourself, 'Why did I want to grow up so badly? Is this all there is?'" says Sartino. "But at the same time, the album holds songs that were written when I was still in high school and experiencing a lot of big firsts, so it's also a soundtrack to those moments, the ones that lead me to where I am now."
