Press: Hartford Courant Covers Bandshes' Collaboration with Hartford Prints

The Hartford Courant interviewed Zoe Chatfield of Bandshes and Pedro Bermudez of Revisionist Films about the recent collaboration for the Hartford Prints! 2017 Holiday commercial. They talk about the evolution of the band and song, and the importance of instilling local pride through artistic collaboration and local business.

Track Debut: "Once You Go"

From the Pioneer Valley Underground:

The Bandshes originally took off with their single, “Lost Cities.” Unbeknownst to them, the song was included in the movie “Unfriended” as the main theme. Once they got the word that they were in, they picked up their efforts as a group and started playing shows all over the Western New England Area and beyond.

“Once You Go” is a melodic ballad that keeps with the minimal sound of piano and vocal harmonies, but with a lot more dynamic to it. “Lost Cities” had an almost haunting quality to it with the lack of volume change that worked for the track (and especially worked for a horror movie). Now, they get a little more Romantic which is perfect for a Baroque Pop trio.
