Break through guitar cardinals Catholic Action are heading for Leeds this week when they will be promoting their new album and single.
The Glasgow band will be playing a gig at the Headrow House, in Leeds, next Wednesday (November 8) after unveiling a slick, low-slung anthem ‘Black & White’. A calculated and precise slow-burner, the single inverts the raw and unpredictable sound showcased on previous single ‘Propaganda’.
It was written by frontman Chris McCrory as a reaction to finding out about the death of David Bowie.
Catholic Action’s album, ‘In Memory Of’, is also out now via Modern Sky. A vivid collection of smart guitar-pop anthems, the record is as rewarding as it is challenging and features BBC Radio 1 favourites ‘L.U.V.’ and ‘Propaganda’.
The record has garnered critical praise and combines a youthful energy with an innate songwriting prowess. Despite having nods toward guitar pop from the past and present, the album has its gaze truly fixed in the future.
