Cats on Fire are from Finland and their press release makes a big deal about them not being a metal band which becomes pretty obvious when 'Our Temperance Movement' begins playing on the office sound system. It sounds like singer/songwriter 'Mattias Bjorkas' has spent the majority of his life listening to British and American indie pop of the late eighties/early nineties and now wants to forge a career from aping these styles. Cats in Paris certainly do a good job of sounding like a mix of early Smiths and R.E.M combined but for this reason it lacks the originality and invention, saying that Cats on Fire know how to craft a proper indie pop gem and the vocals are strangely endearing for a Finnish dude doing his best Morrissey impression. You can hear the ambition throughout 'Our Temperence Movement'. Matthias's lyrics pack enough wit and poetic charm to keep the listener interested and the musical accompaniment is competently played without ever being overwhelming. Not ground breaking by any stretch but still pretty decent.
