After seeing that Heidi. have had a 15 year career and given how quickly groups can disband I thought it would be fun to discuss artists you can’t believe are still active/together. As per usual this isn’t exclusive to the VK scene and it can be any reason why (for example, length of career, obnoxious bandomen)
My first pick is Chanty who have been active for almost a decade, why I’m so surprised they’re still together:
Shia (guitarist) was arrested for fraud
Chitose (founding member and guitarist) left the group
Naruto the next hokage pausing activities due to wrist damage
Losing one guitarist is bad enough but to lose a founding member and whom I imagine was one of the main composers is normally the kiss of the death but despite all this they’re still going. I’m sure there are far more surprising artists but this is the first that I thought of.
