Glasgow’s sassiest and brightest band Catholic Action release their long-awaited debut album. A record that’s been years in the making for a band that has prolifically produced great material since their inception, the album was produced by their frontman Chris McCrory alongside Margo Broom (Fat White Family, Goat Girl, Dead Pretties, Phobophobes). The album is a a vibrant collection of guitar-pop anthems. Opening track L.U.V. is an example of Catholic Action’s angular approach to pop. The Shallows is one In Memory Of’s biggest moments, with it’s festival ready, sing-along chorus while New Year and Doing Well battle each other to be the album’s most catchy tune. Album closer Stars and Stripes brings together all of the album’s different elements, uniting the threads for a satisfying conclusion.


The single Propaganda released on limited 7’ Vinyl, taken from their debut album In Memory Of. It includes B Side Sunday Driver (Divide and Conquer Edit). A breakneck paced slab of punked up art-rock, Propaganda typifies Catholic Action’s penchant for penning instantly memorable pop nuggets, with a sardonic and knowing sense of self. Propaganda is a snappy piece of morning after regret, with frontman Chris McCrory explaining that the track “is a bad reaction to a hellish night. Spent up to my neck in landfill indie and cheap pints. A drunken epiphany on the dance floor, when you realise you’re very, very lost.”
