On air: Listen to Catholic Action in session for BBC Radio 1

Listen to Catholic Action in session for BBC Radio 1

They popped into Maida Vale to play a session for Huw Stephens.

Glaswegians Catholic Action popped into the BBC’s Maida Vale studio to play a session for Huw Stephens yesterday.

After storming through a version of ‘Doing Well’ (where they did indeed do well), they had a bit of a chat about serenading Annie Mac, as you do. They then launched into ‘Rita Ora’, which indeed is 100% endorsed by the pop singer herself. They weren’t sure whether she’d return the favour and write a song called ‘Catholic Action’ though. Shame.

They also made a cheeky reference to their upcoming UK tour, and stated that their debut album was finished. Exciting times!

Listen to Catholic Action’s full session with Huw Stephens below.
