Her: Neighbourhood

A new video emerges from Her, coinciding with the news that the band will not be continuing.

The band, formed in 2015 by Victor Solf and Simon Carpentier, had continued after the death of Carpentier, Solf saying that he had promised to finish their debut album and to continue with the band as long as possible.

He confirmed to an audience in Rennes, their home town, that he had done all he could, and later posted a message confirming that the act woud continue until the end of their tour in February next year, and he would then close this chapter of his live and open a new one.

Victor Solf plans a solo career, saying it is necessary to move forward in his life and to find his freedom again, both artistic and personal.

No doubt it was a hard decision, but it is a completely understandable one.

The decision brings to a close one of France's most promising new acts in recent years. The decision to carry on following the death of a founder member was an appropriate tribute, and the decision to finally bring the curtain down seems right.

With the legacy of Her behind him as a solo artist, Victor Solf can develop his career in his own way.

I look forward to the next chapter.
