Meursault is a creative offspring of Edinburgh's champion of "epic lo-fi” Neil Pennycook, who describes it as "a solo project with a revolving cast of friends/musicians”. Since their debut release in 2008, they made appearances at major music festivals (SXSW, Glastonbury, T in the Park, End of the Road) and received critical praise from the likes of Pitchfork, Drowned in Sound, The Skinny and The Line of Best Fit. In 2013, Meursault's third album, Something for the Weakened, was nominated for the Scottish Album of the Year (SAY) award. After a break of three years performing under the moniker of Supermoon, Neil Pennycook returned to Meursault with a new LP I Will Kill Again released via Song, By Toad in February 2017.
Praise for Meursault
"Filled with majestic, sorrowful beauty and touches of light, it’s a welcome return for one of Edinburgh’s most treasured acts." - The Skinny
"New album I Will Kill Again is yet another deft collection of songs, full of gorgeous melodies and gentle, lilting harmonies." - Drowned in Sound
Born from the smouldering ashes of Glasgow psychedelic indie punks The Yawns, Lush Purr feature the songwriting talents of Gavin Will, rhythm section all-stars Emma Smith and Rikki Will, and guitar/synth wizardry of Oreste Fazio. Gently humorous, melancholic and adventurous, they swing from lo-fi jangly pop to full-on psychedelic fuzz. Nominated for Best Newcomer prize at last year's Scottish Alternative Music Awards, the band are releasing a remixed/remastered version of their debut Cuckoo Waltz in May 2017.

"outstanding combination of dreamy nostalgia and ecstatic energy” - The Skinny
"muffled charm of The Beta Band with the staggered pop sensibilities of Beck” - Echoes and Dust
