Catholic Action, Fauves, Ava Love and Dancing On Tables

Here’s a recap of this week’s most dynamic new Scottish releases including news of the debut album from Catholic Action as well as single releases from Fauves, Ava Love and Dancing On Tables: 

The first track from Catholic Action's debut album 'In Memory Of', due for release later this year, is new single Propaganda. Fuelled with anthemic charm, distant crowd roars are almost instilled in its very core amid every drum beat. The four-piece present a nonchalant defiance of the everyday mundane, whilst still embracing the euphoria of a disorientated mind. Howling chorus lines compliment the glistening resonance of their statement guitar riffs, it’s hard not to be completely compelled by the teasings of this (less than) two-minute track. For more:



Despite their “newcomer” status to the local scene, Fauves are already creating a back catalogue of substantial hits, following on from recent their release Hit Like This, is a new single Afterglow. The track possesses a flirtatious flair achieved through heart-stopping drum beats and diversified breakdowns to back spirited vocal stylings. An instrumentally climactic track displaying pop sensibilities at their most bittersweet. For more:




A track that wouldn’t seem out of place against the rolling credits of an 80’s blockbuster, Ava Love's Chophouse is a defiant yet buoyantly sleek anthem. Unrelenting and at points cutting, riffs masquerade an equally sharp vocal for a brilliantly grotesque, concise listen supported with a freeing use of lyricism. For more: 

Dunfermline based five-piece Dancing On Tables return with new single Tracey to offer a youth tinged embrace with this charming indie track. In classic DoT style, we’re given three minutes worth of punchy, panoramic riffs and catchy harmonies. Sentimental melodies make for a light as air listen, perfect for these carefree summer months.
