Finally, Catholic Action's début record In Memory Of is due on October 20 on Modern Sky UK. So here's why you should be be thrilled about it.
Number 1: They make good covers. The band covered for instance the great Silver Jew's tune Honk If You're Lonely Tonight, which shows they have great music tastes and can nail a good cover. HONK!
Number 2: They have promising songs. The latest songs from the Glasgow boys inc. Propaganda, Sunday Driver, Doing Well are very encouraging. The band manage to churn very poppy melodies without being too predictable, definitely trying to shape their own sounds.
Number 3: They are Cribs fans. Because in an interview with Third Outing, lead singer Chris McCrory told us this: "We all think the first three albums by The Cribs are completely underrated masterpieces...Ryan Jarman is the ultimate anti-hero guitar player." We couldn't agree more, right!
Number 4: They are Scotland's greatest hope. Catholic Action have been around for some time now, and have already released good tunes. We loved the bass driven L.U.V, the chilled out The Shallows, New Year, and Catching Up. And as for one of the brightest tracks of year, Breakfast, which you need to wrap your lugs around below...
Number 5: They are extremely good live. That's right, Catholic Action know how to entertain a crowd and to take their songs to another level live. They made waves at SXSW in Austin, TX, and are about to get on the road in the UK and Europe. Catch them live before they get big!
