In 2008, the band split up while working on their follow-up album. Yuri finished the record on his own, and Done / Undone
was released in 2009 featuring both group efforts and Méndez's solo recordings. It's a double album: "'Done' for all the things that came to an end, and 'Undone' for all the possibilities that rose from it."
Third album Old Goodbyes
(2011) was recorded mostly live and, according to Yuri, the record was "a rupture, a break with the past."
On 2013's Kulturkatzenjammer
Yuri wrote, played, arranged, mixed and produced everything, save a few drum tracks. While still sounding very much like Pajaro Sunrise, the album is more electronic and experimental than previous releases.
Yuri’s songs have been featured on movie soundtracks, TV ads and series such as The Big C, Castle, The Missing Lynx, Vodafone and McDonald's.
