Meursault are an alternative indie folk band from Edinburgh who use traditional acoustic instruments, such as guitar, banjo and ukulele, teamed with electronic sounds to make their own distinctive music. Lead singer, Neil Pennycook’s powerful voice also makes the band’s music unique.  Meursault have released two full length albums to date, the first Pissing On Bonfires/ Kissing With Tongues in 2008 which was placed at #16 in The Skinny's Scottish Albums of the Decade and their second All Creatures Will Make Merry in 2010.

Although the band is fairly successful, I think they still deserve more recognition so go and have a listen.

This is New Ruin from the album All Creatures Will Make Merry:

And this is A Small Stretch Of Land from the first album Pissing On Bonfires/ Kissing With Tongues:
