Last August, tragedy struck the French band Her. Simon Carpentier, one half of the duo, passed away after years fighting cancer. He was 27. Victor Solf, Her’s other half, posted a deeply moving message on their Facebook page: "Simon was my best friend, my colleague, my brother in arms. Together we made a promise. We promised to continue step by step on this incredible adventure. Today I carry his legacy within me and it is my wish, as well as the wish of the entire Her team, to continue to bring our music along as far as possible." The summer tour carried on in an emotionally-charged atmosphere.
