Nachdem die Long Blondes am Montag ihr trauriges Ende bekannt gaben, verkündet Sängerin Kate Jackson bereits einen Tag später ihre Solo-Ambitionen. Sie arbeite an ihrem eigenen Material und plane ein Solo-Album. "I'm writing a lot of lyrics and I'm trying to write music on my own, which is something I've never done before. It's very early days though; I mean, the Long Blondes have only just split up."
Zum Long-Blondes-Split sagt sie: "The whole thing with Dorian, we didn't really want to talk about it too much because we knew if we did say, 'Dorian's had a stroke' then the inevitable question would be asked about the band splitting up. We weren't ready to answer that question until now. As we're releasing this 'Singles' compilation with Angular [am 22.10. veröffentlicht] we thought that'd be a really good way to round up everything we've done in the past, say 'thank you' to our fans and to coincide with that we've announced that we were going to break up."
