Nice to see this, got into Pistolita about a week before their break-up.
Good song too.

pistolita was a great band, very underrated. Loved "Panic", beautiful song. Hope Chandellers does something good with the talent they have.

I'm undecided on this. I'm a big Pistolita fan, and I'm just afraid Conor's new efforts (especially after hearing "Swing") are going to be lacking the intensity and urgency that made Pistolita special.

The song they have posted is pretty boring and uninspired. Pistolita was fantastic; I am really disappointed with him.

i really like "swings." this, on the other hand, does nothing for me.

Not gonna lie, this song made me miss Pistolita even more.

I'm afraid Chandeliers will be lacking quite a few things in comparison.

these epic, overwrought pop ballads are a dime a dozen, but nothing compared to pistolita. RIP.

It was a sad day when they broke up. I was able to talk to Cory and Justin after a Weatherbox show about a month ago and relive some Pistolita memories. I hope Conor decides to play a few last Pistolita shows in CA like he talked about before.
