It has already been a week since we became a UK-based band. Having landed in London on the 17th of April, we collected our Residence Permits the following day and have been so busy setting things up that we didn’t even have the time or energy to make a proper statement 🙂
This moment is historical for us, and the biggest move of our lives so far. After leaving Russia and spending a year of uncertainty in Turkey in a dubious legal state, we finally have firm soil under our feet – something we never truly had before – in the form of Global Talent UK residency until 2026, after which we can both extend or apply for settlement and later – citizenship. We have come here for the long term, and are already searching for a good rent somewhere in the rural areas of the country.
Once that is settled, we will be able to resume full-scale work on our music and touring, only this time in incomparably better conditions.
We are infinitely grateful to our fans and Crowdfunders who made this move possible. Once we have found a place to live, we will start shipping out the perks and will also set up a date for the homecoming acoustic concert. We already have a venue in mind in London 😉
Here is to a new start,
infinitely grateful for these amazing opportunities,
– Jane, Aor
