'Skulls' EP (2010)
'The Dane' Single (2011)



The Recusants are a London based indie band in the

truest sense of the word. Formed by two friends in 2009

they play guitar driven, introspective pop songs; drawing

influence from The Pogues, The Ramones, John Wilmot

and The Wedding Present. A young band with a strong DIY

sensibility; The Recusants promote their own nights and

release music through Ragpicker, their own label.

In 2010 they released a 200 copy

limited edition hand-sewn and painted EP ‘Skulls’ their

first official release which is available from Rough Trade

and Banquet Records and which contains four songs,

including live favourites 'Take me home' and 'Young

hearts' and which was championed by 6Music Radio DJs

Steve Lamacq and Tom Robinson.

The Recusants debut single, recorded live at Urchin

Studios in December 2010, is titled ‘The Dane’ and is due for

release on February 28th 2011. The B side

‘Cyan Skies’ was recorded in one take and later

overdubbed with cornets by their flatmate at their house

in Islington. The single will be available for FREE download

from the band and website and also on limited edition

vinyl from Rough Trade and other independent stores.

They will be touring the UK for the first time in February

and are considering taking a 15ft Model Chainsaw bearing

their name on the road with them that was made for and

given to them at a Christmas party in a warehouse they

played in south London.
