Catholic Action hit hard on new track ‘Doing Well’

The band play Roundhouse Rising on Saturday, in association with DIY.

Catholic Action have shared a new track on the eve of their imminent UK tour. ‘Doing Well’ follows the fuzzy, excellent ‘Rita Ora’ and continues frontman Chris McCrory’s emergence as a brilliantly bold band leader.

In a pretty damn busy year for the Scots, they’ve announced that their debut album is coming later this year via new indie label Modernsky, while they also jet off to SXSW next month.
