Catholic Action today release ‘New Year’, the latest single from their acclaimed debut album In Memory Of. Joined by brand new song ‘Little Girl’ as its b-side, ‘New Year’ is a stomping singalong anthem that readies Catholic Action for a huge year ahead. Speaking about ‘New Year’ and ‘Little Girl’, singer Chris said:

“One for falling out of, and one for falling in…

Two songs about love.

A party and a poem for afterwards.”

In Memory Of is produced by McCrory and Margo Broom. Combining a youthful energy with an innate songwriting prowess, the album shines with a rarely seen confidence. Despite having nods toward guitar pop from the past and present, the album has its gaze truly fixed in the future.

Following their set on the BBC Introducing showcase in 2017, Catholic Action will return to Austin, Texas this year to play the opening evening of SXSW as part of DIY’s British Music Embassy showcase. The band are also heading out across the UK on a fourteen-date headline tour, including a show at The Cellar in Oxford and London’s Birthdays on February 23rd.
