Momentum: Catholic Action
Catholic Action’s ‘In Memory Of’ shines with pop-smarts, clever hooks and confidence rarely seen in a new act. Their breakneck paced punked up art-rock, typifies Catholic Action’s penchant for penning instantly memorable pop nuggets, with a sardonic and knowing sense of self.
They’ve clearly soaked up the history of Scottish music across the ages, whilst crafting an sound of their own. For each Belle & Sebastian witticism or Teenage Fanclub melody, there’s a unpredictable flash of their own brand of glam-noise. LP opener ‘L.U.V.’ is a glorious example of Catholic Action’s angular approach to pop, while ‘Breakfast’ is a Pavement-esque stomper, if Malkmus had favoured Glasgow over sunnier climes.

“Momentum provides invaluable financial resource to us with releasing our new album independently and on our own terms to our fans in the UK.”
