British girl group Neon Jungle has split up after two years to pursue solo projects.

Shereen Cutkelvin, Asami Zdrenka, Jess Plummer and Amira McCarthy said the decision to split was “heartbreaking” but they had all agreed it was “time to continue our journeys individually”.

“Yours very truly

Jess, Asami, Shereen & Amira.”

The “edgy pop” group was formed by music manager David Cooper in 2012 and went on to secure a record deal with RCA Records in 2013.

During their two year career, Neon Jungle supported Jessie J on tour as well as performing alongside Taylor Swift at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in the US.

Their most successful single, “Braveheart”, peaked at number four in the UK top 40 singles chart in February 2014.
