The pop quartet rose to prominence in the summer of 2013 with the release of its debut single, Trouble, which cracked the U.K. top 20, and the singers went on to enjoy further chart success at home with follow-up songs Louder and Braveheart, which debuted at number four last year (14).

Their only album, 2014's Welcome to the Jungle, peaked in the U.K. at eight, but now Shereen Cutkelvin, Asami Zdrenka, Jess Plummer and Amira MCCarthy have decided to call it quits.

Announcing the news in a post on on Monday (06Jul15), the band states, "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 (sic)!?!?"
