Our hearts were heavy with sadness when we learned that one of our favorite bands, Neon Jungle, has broken up after two years together. The UK girl group, made up of Asami Zdrenka, Amira McCarthy, Shereen Cutkelvin, and Jess Plummer, issued the most heartbreaking statement on their official Facebook page, announcing their decision to split to their fans, the Ohana.
"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 recognized 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're definitely going to miss the girls' music, and their fabulous red carpet appearances together. But with a sendoff message so sweet and supportive, we understand that the group had to make a hard decision.
