Edinburgh based musician Neil Pennycook began performing under the name Meursault in 2006.

By the time of the release of debut album ‘Pissing on Bonfires/Kissing With Tongues’, in December 2008, a settled band had formed, and had developed a very distinctive character based around a shifting interplay of electronic and traditional instruments. The songs themselves were based on the themes of separation and estrangement, and the work is best described as a ‘break-up’ album, albeit without the usual, romantic connotations.

Presently, Meursault are writing a third (as yet untitled) album while continuing to perform regularly both locally and further afield.
