Despite two Top Ten singles and a Top Ten album, promising shouty chorus practitioners Neon Jungle have decided to call it a day.
The news was broken via the medium of a Facebook post, which we have now basically copied and pasted below:
"Ohana means family and family means no one gets left behind or forgotten." This, from day 1, has been our mantra and always will be.
We started our journey in an unknown, unnamed "girl band" just 2 years ago. Within that time, we went (rather quickly) from four strangers, to four complete best friends. From being unknown, to being recognised all over the world. From being unnamed to "Neon Jungle”.
But Neon Jungle is more than a four piece girl band.
Neon Jungle are Ohana. Ohana — formed by all the love and support we have received over the past couple of years.
Which is why writing this is extremely difficult.
After many honest and heartfelt discussions, we have all agreed with a tremendously heavy heart, that it is time for us to continue our journeys individually.
This does not mean for a second we have separated! We will always and forever be in each other's lives, and ALWAYS be supportive of one another.
Although this is a heart breaking reality for the four of us, it is also extremely exciting, and we would love for all of you guys to also continue our new journeys with us.
4 for the price of 1 aye!?!?
Ohana is forever
Thank you so much for everything past, present and future.
Yours very truly
Jess, Asami, Shereen & Amira
WE WILL NOT FORGET.
(Ohana would have been a good name for the band wouldn't it.)
In case you have forgotten, this is the first time we wrote about them (they didn't have a name at this point), and here is one of their hit songs.
They had a lot of potential, didn't they? OH WELL. Good luck ladies!
