But it is no longer. “The interaction between Jente and I was often charming, but that certainly wasn’t always the case,” says Peebles. I’ve tried to set boundaries, but I feel in vain. I always thought we could save the situation, but it turned out to be hopeless. For these reasons, I decided to leave the band. I am convinced that Jente will reinvent the collection. It was a tough decision and I will miss the band, crew, fans and music, but don’t leave you empty handed. Please enjoy what we’ve been making all these years, have fun love of music(VTM program in which the band participates, edited) And Departurethe second record.
“Sarah’s departure left a deep impression on me,” says Jente Pironet. “Life as a band is intense and pushes us to the limit. It led to a dynamic that we couldn’t reverse. I regret that the distance that has developed between us cannot be bridged, but respect the decision you make. It will no doubt be different without Sarah, but Portland will remain.”
