CATS ON FIRE The Province Complains ALBUM REVIEW

Cats On Fire - The Provice ComplainsWith all of the attention that Sweden gets the majority of the time, there are some Scandinavian neighbors that always seem to get left out. But hailing all the way from Finland, Cats On Fire’s debut The Province Complains is a nonstop ruckus of jangly guitars from start to end. The obvious influences such as The Smiths, Orange Juice, The Cure are all over the album.

It’s actually kind of hard to choose a “favorite” or even “favorites.” When you have a hard time choosing a favorite or favorites and you keep skipping back and forth trying to find it, that’s a great sign of an album that’s solidly written. The first four songs alone are more than enough to have you hooked on Cats On Fire. The eerie Smithesque “I Am The White-mantled King” to fun and jittery bubble gum feeling of “Astray” and the feet pitter pattering “Higher Grounds” then the thoughtful ballad “Heat and Romance” all represent what Cats On Fire are about. Songs that will have you feeling all over the place.

Though Sweden may seem to get the spotlight all the time, Finland’s Cats On Fire definitely brings over some of that shine with their bright debut The Province Complains.
