For those who love instantly-classic guitar pop - stuff like Voxtrot, The Smiths, The Lucksmiths, Orange Juice... you know what I mean? Just stuff that upon first hearing it, you totally love it - and it still sounds great decades later. That's where Cats on Fire are coming from. "When we first saw the Finnish quartet Cats On Fire enter the stage on a beautiful summer's day in Malmö two years ago, we realized in the blink of an eye that their music does not conform. A classic guitar pop ensemble, they carry on a tradition born in the english 80's indie scene, where beautifully chiseled chords and jangling guitars join lyrics that do not fear to tackle the important issues of our time. Vocalist and songwriter Mattias Björkas' lyrics don't attempt to flee seriousness, at the same time they bring a refreshing sense of dark humour. Along with tunes that have the ability to stick in one's mind Cats On Fire represent that intelligent kind of pop music we believe many, many people have been anxiously awaiting."
