Meursault album cover
"Whoever they superficially sound like, Meursault have their own, distinct sound, thanks to Pennycook's beautiful, melancholy songs and his instantly recognisable voice, which can switch between a sweet, Neil Young-like falsetto on the acoustic A Small Stretch of Land to a bleak howl on the stomping, memorable The Furnace"
The Scotsman
"There’s more than a hint of bleakness and isolation in this intriguing experiment in sonic hybridisation"
★★★★ Mojo
"A formidable display of ingenious poise and balance"
★★★★★ The Skinny
"Any song that invokes A-Ha, Daft Punk and speed-metal riffage is a certified winner"

2018 marks the 10th anniversary of the first Meursault record, ‘Pissing on Bonfires/Kissing With Tongues’. To mark the occasion, the band are going to play the album and the ‘Nothing Broke’ EP in their entirety.

While songwriter Neil Pennycook is not usually one for birthday celebrations, the landscape of Meursault (as a project) has changed so drastically over the years he thought it’d be interesting to play these songs and find out what they sounded like through the filter of fresh context.

Neil will be joined onstage by some familiar faces and special guests. Join us as we celebrate with one of Edinburgh’s favourite homegrown acts of the last decade.

Support comes from Edinburgh’s Eagleowl.
