Farewell to The Long Blondes

NME is reporting that The Long Blondes have split up. Not entirely surprised due to health issues of one of the band members, but a band that will be missed. Their two studio albums both showed real promise, taking a few obvious influences and crafting something new and fresh; I still think Couples is quite underrated.

I saw the band in DC at the Rock and Roll Hotel in 2007 and I thought the songs from the first album were even better live.
