In the same vein as Ireland’s Glen Hansard is Scotland’s Meursault, an acoustic pop collective featuring Neil Pennycook, Calum MacLeod, Lorcan Doherty, Sam Mallalieu, and Ben Fletcher, among others. The band is set to release their new LP, Something For The Weekend.
It’s their third, but the first recorded in a proper studio. As such, you can expect a fuller sound containing more percussion and expanded instrumentation. What remains is the heartfelt folk-influenced pop songwriting, touching and emotive.
“Flittin'” is the first single off the album and it’s a stunner. Check out the tune below, and pick up a copy of Something For The Weekend from Song, By Toad.
