Catholic Action New Single “I’m No Artist” | ‘Celebrated by Strangers’ LP Out Friday

Glasgow’s kaleidoscopic garage rock band Catholic Action will release their new album Celebrated by Strangers this Friday on Palo Santo Records. Today, they’ve shared dynamic album single “I’m No Artist.” A new wave, futuristic beat drives the song’s chaotic and cathartic resound as frontman Chris McCrory chants, “I don’t feel creative / I’m not great with words / Withhold your ideas / Don’t sing with conviction / I’m no artist.” Behind a fuzzed-out chorus and avant-garde guitar solos is a track where instinct and the masterful control of one’s surroundings exist in unison.

The hypnotic, rib-rattling record is armed with politically pointed lyrical daggers and powerful arena-ready licks. Indebted at times to the progressive ‘70s influences of Eno, Fripp and Talking Heads, Celebrated by Strangers is ultimately the sonic statement of a band inspired by the mire of the now, with a sense of humor, hope, change and proactivity. McCrory adds, “We’ve made a record that embraces the negatives – both from a musical and social/political standpoint – sees the humour in them and ultimately turns them into something positive; be that a better outlook, or progressive political action.”
