Get in the right 'lane...

Read it & weep.
The fantastic four "Electrelane" are no more.
Brighton's sexiest exports have decided to go on an "indefinite hiatus"...
I don't even know what that means?
Have they called it a day? Or are they taking break?
At The Drive-In are still on one of those indefinite things.
So is Blink 182 (whose last album was awesome!!!).

So this is what they had to say about it:


We have decided that the upcoming gigs will be our last for the foreseeable future.
After ten years of much fun and hard work, we have realised that we all need a break and time to do other things.
This was a tough decision for us to make, but ultimately a positive one.
A big thank you to everyone who has come to our shows, put on our shows, and bought our records over the years.
It means a lot to us. We're really grateful to have had the opportunity to play gigs all over the world and to meet so many lovely people.
This last year has been especially enjoyable and we feel happy about moving on with all these good memories to look back on. At the moment we haven’t made any band plans for the future, but we’re going to have a break and see what happens. Love, Electrelane"

You have to wonder, has this happened because of Vera November?!?
Vera November is the solo project of Electrelane’s front-woman and multi-instrumentalist Verity Susman.
Her sound is a unique and exciting rebirth where old and new joyously collide, strings soar over furious synth drum beats and accordions cavort , ethereal vocals float in a world of their own and stark keyboard melodies haunt and bewitch....
...Or something a little less pretentious.

Ah no, I can't believe it. I thought they were going to be huge. I guess I'll wander over to Vera's myspace now and weep.

The drummer is fit.
Their new record was kinda cool. I saw them live about a few months back though and thought they were dismal.

I'm liking Verity's solo stuff though.
